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

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 - CEREX Tour
Tour of CEREX Advanced Fabrics, Chemstrand Road, Cantonment
Tuesday January 27 @ 6 PM
Location: 610 Chemstrand Road, Cantonment, FL 32533. USE THESE DIRECTIONS
Our first "Industrial" tour of the year. On this tour you'll see how high-tech nylon fabrics are made at a world leader of spunbond nylon non-woven fabrics!
Allow plenty of driving time and PLEASE get there early. We'll start at 6 pm sharp and should finish at 7:30.
CEREX does not have any publicly accessible parking outside the main gate, so they will open everything up and let folks come in to park and drop off.
We’ll start in a conference room in thier Administration Building (Bldg 487) at 6pm. CEREX will direct folks once you get here. Parents may drop off their students and are also welcome to stay if they wish.
Following discussion in the conference room, we’ll take a plant tour and see the facility. All tour participants will be required to wear long pants and closed toe shoes at a minimum (and a shirt….) CEREX will provide safety glasses and hearing protection and will certainly keep everyone out of harm’s way. We’ll wrap up no later than 7:30pm, so please have the parents back by that time so we can get everyone headed home and get the gates locked back up.

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.

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.
