Unravel math mysteries, problem-solve, and experiment with exciting math activities alongside female engineers from Raytheon! See math principles in action during this hands-on day of exploration at Massachusetts Maritime Academy. Juniors and Cadettes will follow separate tracks. Lunch included. Patch included. Drop-off event.
Bridges are necessary structures that get used every day by people all over the world. Learn all about different types of bridges and how to design and engineer a bridge using everyday materials. Then test it to see how much weight it can hold!
Aerospace Engineering: Gliders
Learn about aerospace engineering and the science of flight. Work in teams to build gliders using the engineering design process. Then test them out as you race other teams’ gliders down a zip line.
Design, build, and test a shock-absorbing spacecraft lander to keep your cargo safe during a moon landing. Learn about space science, kinetic energy, and shock-absorbing principles.
Environmental Engineering: Urban Landscapes
Become an environmental engineer for the day as you design urban landscapes! Learn about storm water runoff, explore the technologies and methods used to reduce pollution, and build structures for your landscape while staying within your budget. Test how a model city is impacted by rain and analyze the results of pollution. Then work together to brainstorm solutions to current environmental issues.
