Elementary Engineering Exploration Day
Date: Saturday, March 20th, 2021
Time: 10:00am-12:30 for grades 1-2, 1:00 pm-3:30 for grades 3-5
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! Because of the pandemic, we cannot meet in person this year, so EEE Day will be held over Zoom. Engineering is all about collaboration, so we are encouraging friends getting 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. This spring’s theme is Neverland and the magic of science, and costumes are encouraged!
Who: Elementary Students, Grades 1-5. The event is co-ed, and parents are welcome to join!
Where: EEE Day will be held virtually over Zoom (link provided after registration).
Why: It's important to encourage kids to learn more about science and math early on to start building the skills and confidence in their abilities. 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: Free! Please note that due to University restrictions, we are unable to provide activity kits and supplies this semester, so a list of necessary supplies will be provided beforehand. Much effort has been made to ensure that most items are common household items. We do not want cost to be a barrier to participation: if purchasing supplies would pose a financial hardship for you, please contact Kaitlyn Barr at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For questions, contact Kaitlyn Barr at email@example.com or call the SWE Office at (734) 763-5027 (Note: Email is the best form of contact as phone access is limited due to the COVID-19 pandemic).
Thank you for your interest in EEE Day! I hope to (virtually) see you on March 20th!
