Helping Hands
Virtual Sun, Jan 17 12:00 PM
January 17- Virtual Workshop: Kinetic Art Girls will transform found materials into works of art during this at-home workshop. We will look at some ways that artists might use the engineering design process to create mesmerizing sculptures and illusions. Our Education staff will send a list of suggested materials ahead of time so you can gather everything you need, then join our Educator over a Zoom call to collaborate on the design process!
Virtual Sun, Jan 24 12:00 PM
January 24- Virtual Workshop: Recycled Machines Participants will think like engineers as they design a solution that will help others. We will use recycled and found materials to prototype a machine or robot that helps solve a problem. Our Education staff will send a list of suggested materials ahead of time so you can gather everything you need, then join our Educator over a Zoom call to collaborate on the design process!
Virtual Sun, Jan 31 12:00 PM
January 31- Virtual Workshop: Astro Designers Discover the ways that science has changed our understanding of the universe over time - without leaving home! Together, girls will explore the constellations and design a life-sustaining planet. Our Education staff will send a list of suggested materials ahead of time so you can gather everything you need, then join our Educator over a Zoom call for the program!

February 14 - Bridge the Gap Civil engineers are always testing new materials and techniques to help us get from place to place. Girls will step into the shoes of a civil engineer for the day and use 3D printing technology to build the strongest bridges possible.
Lab A Sun, Feb 21 12:00 PM
February 7- Kitchen Chemistry Back by popular demand! Participants will join us in the lab to explore the science behind cooking and complete a fresh batch of cooking challenges.
Lab A Sun, Feb 28 12:00 PM
February 28 - Designing for Safety Participants will design vehicles that protect passengers during a collision. Then, we will use eggs as crash test dummies to identify the most successful designs. Let’s hope no one cracks under the pressure!
Lab A Sun, Mar 7 12:00 PM
March 7- Sensational Circuits Prove that you’re the brightest in the bunch by using unconventional materials to build and modify electrical circuits. Participants will face a series of challenges to light the most lights while using the least power possible.

March 14 - Sphero Artists Art meets technology in this fun workshop! Girls will use simple block coding concepts, Spheros, and a lot of creativity to create hypnotic and colorful artworks.
Lab A Sun, Mar 21 12:00 PM
March 21 - Lunar Landing What goes up...must come down-especially in the case of an astronaut headed to space! Participants will team up to build a capsule that can first send astronauts through the atmosphere, then help them land safely once their mission is complete.
Lab A Sun, Apr 25 12:00 PM
April 25 - Wind Power Ever wonder how engineers help us to harness the power of wind? Girls will explore how design affects performance as they build and test functional wind turbines.
