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!
