.: NEWS - GET READY FOR A NEW YEAR!
Engineering Explorers is going to kick-off the 2016-2017 school year on September 27th at 6PM in the Addison Auditorium of the Gulf Power Corporate Office. Please see our 2016 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!

Tonight we strategize for Winterfest! In which events will we compete? The organizers have a portion of the website set aside describing all the events. Specifically - as an Engineering Explorer Post we typically like to participate in the STEM events. This year these consist of a number of thinking challenges:
- MacGyver Challenge (REQUIRED)
- Egg Drop
- Fox Hunt
- Robot Programming
- Cardboard Boat Regatta
- Stomp Rocket Assisted Glider Launch
Generally speaking, the more events we compete in, the more fun we have and the better we place. See the scoring sheet at the end of the STEM Event Guide for more information!

Emerald Coast Electrathon - www.emeraldcoastelectrathon.com
Saturday April 22nd, 2017 - 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.

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.
