Elementary Engineering Exploration Day

Date: Saturday, November 12th, 2022

Time: 10:00am-2:00pm

 

Are you and your child interested in learning more about the field of engineering while participating in fun, new activities? EEE Day is a wonderful opportunity for your child to have a hands-on, interactive engineering experience! Engineering is all about collaboration, so we are encouraging friends to get together in socially distant groups to do the activities together. Activity leaders will guide participants through the activities. All activities can be completed with limited adult or older sibling supervision, and our EEE Day team will be there to provide additional help throughout all of the activities! The Society of Women Engineers strives to teach elementary school students that engineering can be a fun and creative career.

 

Who: Elementary Students, Grades K-5. The event is co-ed, and parents are welcome to join!

 

Where: EEE Day will be held in-person at the Bob & Betty Beyster Building on University of Michigan’s North Campus.

 

Why: We strive to cultivate an exciting atmosphere for children to work together on engaging engineering tasks to inspire a passion for engineering. Engineering is more than just the technical stuff. It develops creativity, teamwork, and problem-solving skills which are all important skills that are used on a daily basis.

 

Cost*: $8.00/student, $5.00/adult

 

*We do not want cost to be a barrier to participation. If the registration fee would pose a financial hardship for you, please contact Abigail Ahn at swe.elementary@umich.edu.
