.: Winterfest Registration Due by January 7th

January 7th is the deadline for us to register for the 2014 Winterfest in Gatlinburg, TN.

Want to sign up for Winterfest? Fill out the registration form and drop off the form with a $75 deposit to the Corporate Office security desk, or email Frank Browne (phone: 850-336-1080). The deposit and form must be received by January 7th, 2014 to avoid late fees.

Here is a link to the cardboard regatta race that we won last year (Go Hunter!!!) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tp0CxTfURt0.


.: welcome to engineeringexplorers.com

Our goal is to get high school age students excited about their future in engineering by introducing multiple engineering disciplines and activities.

Engineering Explorer Post 420 is open to any high school student. Membership is $25 for the school year, which includes a t-shirt and project supplies. Post 420 is a part of the Learning for Life program.

.: activities

In the last couple of years we: Soldered together a LED Christmas kit, went skiing in Gatlinburg at the annual winterfest trip, turned light into sound, helped host the First Annual Emerald Coast Electrathon, learned about oceanographic engineering around the bayfront restoration project, toured a large HVAC facility, met with professors at UWF to learn about their engineering programs, and met with engineering co-op students about the value of their experience and to get a taste of college.


.: encourage a young engineer

If you know of a young adult between 14 and 20 who may be interested in learning more about engineering or about a future in engineering - our program will help expose and excite them about the range of possibilities. From Civil to Electrical to Chemical to Mechanical to Computer to Environmental - almost every problem can be dealt with by some branch of the engineering sciences. Join us today!

.: Egg Drop

Safety Engineering
Tuesday April 22nd, @ 6 PM
Location: Gulf Power HQ

Since Sunday, April 20th is Easter, we thought we would use some left-over eggs in a competition to see which teams can design and build an apparatus that will prevent an egg from being smashed against the ground when dropped from a height of greater than 10. Are you up for the challenge? If so, we will see you Tuesday to test your design.

.: VOLUNTEER

Emerald Coast Electrathon - www.emeraldcoastelectrathon.com

Saturday April 26th, 2014 - WE NEED YOU to come out and support the race teams or to help count laps. Mark this date in your calendar for an excellent volunteer opportunity, and a chance to meet some uber-geeks from around the southeast, and beyond.

Volunteers will receive a T-Shirt and a complimentary lunch from the Five Flags Speedway. You will also experience some very creative engineering and design. Watch this space and join the Engineering Explorers Post 420 for information on volunteer registration.

Building your Future in - ENGINEERING (click to read)

Here is a great magazine that shows surrounding Engineering programs and schools in the Southeast. It shares the cost of engineering schools and starting salaries in different engineering degrees.

Please share with your parents and friends.
