.: activities

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!
