Elementary Engineering Exploration Day

Date: Saturday, March 26th, 2022

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 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. This winter’s theme is Animals, 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.

 

We will be providing supply kits for this event that parents can pick up the week of the event.

Cost: $2.50 for registration

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

Thank you for your interest in EEE Day! I hope to (virtually) see you on March 26th!
