The Air Zoo, in partnership with the Society of Women Engineers is proud to present the 2019 Corporate Engineering Challenge! This event is open to girls ages 9-12 and is designed to introduce young girls to engineering concepts through “hands on” activities, talks with female engineers, and collaboration on a challenge team. Thanks to the support of our corporate sponsors, this event is free to the participants.

The Event has two main components:

1) Display stations sponsored by local companies. Each station will include a demonstration of products and/or services the company provides as well as an engineering, science, or math activity for attendees to complete. Ideally, these activities will reflect work done at the company. These stations will be open to any member of the public who has paid admission to visit the Air Zoo that day as well as the girls participating in the challenge.

2) A CHALLENGE activity in the afternoon, where teams of 6-8 girls (ages 9-12) complete a technical challenge and compete against opposing teams. Last year’s challenge was construction of a moon rover and put the girls skills to work on combating the impact gravity had on their rover as well as its ability to explore the moon. Each team is associated with a sponsoring company and led by a representative from that company.
