For older girls ages 12-16, this class will introduce basic structural engineering concepts through physical experiments using real materials in our space. We’ll talk about the 6 simple machines and different forces and structures that cause buildings to stand up (or fall down!). Visits from female engineers will round out our experience and connect learning to future careers and college programs. Girls will earn their engineering badge upon completion of this course.
