Engineer That!-Billings (Grades K-5)
By dreaming up creative and practical solutions, engineers are changing the world all the time. Join us as we partner with CTA Engineers to find out what an engineer does, take a tour of their office and try the hands on activities they have designed just for the Girl Scouts! Engineering has been called the “invisible” or “stealth” profession. Everything around you and that you use every day has been engineered in some way yet you may not see the engineers behind the scenes or know much about engineering.
Engineers take ideas from paper and head to the lab to to invent, design, and build things that matter. They are team players with independent minds who ask, “How can we develop a better recycling system to protect the environment, design a school that can withstand an earthquake, or create cutting-edge special effects for the movies?”
The engineering field is as varied as engineers themselves. Engineers can design and build superstructures or delicate medical instruments. Engineers are exploring for energy and for new worlds in space. They are designing the structure of Disney and creating some of the world's fastest cars. Don't you want to be apart of this amazing universe?
Let's find out what our local engineers do in our community and tour their LEED building. Don't know what a LEED building is? Come find out and take part in their rocking hands on stations! A snack will be provided. This program is to encourage girls to explore technology and discover engineering. Register today as space is limited.
This event is open to grades K-5 and supervising adults.
