Let's Do Some Engineering at the YMCA - February 22, 2018

Post date: Dec 29, 2017 9:37:20 PM

SWE Richmond is partnering with the YMCA for an engineering outreach activity in their after-school program. Volunteers are needed to work with middle school students on two hands-on engineering activities.

In the "Ship the Chip" activity, students will use household materials to pack a Pringle into a box, then simulate shipping it via a drop test. The team with the most intact chip and the lightest packaging is declared the winner.

In the "Pollution Patrol" activity, students will locate the source of an environmental pollutant by systematically testing soil-water samples.
