.: NEWS - GET READY FOR A NEW YEAR
Engineering Explorers is going to kick-off the 2014 school year on September 23rd, 6PM in Addison Auditorium in the Gulf Power Corporate Office. Please see our 2014 flyer if you are interested in all the details!
.: 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 (if paid before October, $30 after), which includes all project supplies. Post 420
is a part of the Learning
for Life program.

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!

.: Next Meeting
Soldering Projects - Gulf Power PINE FOREST Location
Tuesday February 24 @ 6 PM
Location: 9088 Pine Forest Road, Pensacola 32534.
Time to learn or refresh you electrical soldering skills! We’ll provide a very nice kit and all the tools you need to solder the project of your choice. It’s the first of two meetings on soldering since it will take more than a meeting to complete a kit.
Note this meeting will be at the Gulf Power McCrary Training Facility - 9088 Pine Forest Road, Pensacola 32534. The meeting is Tuesday, February 24, starts at 6 and ends about 7:30. SEE MAP BELOW.
Also, you might be very interested in this MESS Hall News:
1) Pizza, Particles, and Waves February 27, 2015 @ 6:00 PM. Each student will build an accurate spectrometer and use it to identify elements by their electron orbitals, recreate the famous dual-slit experiment that proved that light was both particle and wave, and learn how to make lenses and fiber optics with Knox Blox. For middle and high school students (and adults!). $20/$25 member/nonmember. Registration required.http://www.pensacolamesshall.org/events/pizza-particles-and-waves/
2) MESS Hall is having a new volunteer orientation and work day this Sunday at 2 pm, and they would love you to join them. They are looking for volunteers, particularly with good skills such as soldering. http://www.pensacolamesshall.org/get-involved/volunteer

Emerald Coast Electrathon - www.emeraldcoastelectrathon.com
Saturday April 25th, 2015 - 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.
