Whether you’re pushing a grocery cart or blasting off into space, on a swing or playing video games, you have engineering to thank for making your life easier and wonders possible. Now you can leap into the world of engineering for yourself with WonderLab’s Special STEM Sunday: Explore Engineering on Sunday, February 17 from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m.
“My background is in engineering, and I’m excited to share that with WonderLab,” said Sarah Lynn Wells, adult and secondary education specialist at WonderLab. “I’ll personally be running an activity where kids can design and fly advanced paper airplanes.”
And that’s just the beginning. Figure out how to balance a heavy book on top of just a thin sheet of paper with Katie Stein. Control a real robotic arm with Megan White and explore the inner workings of conveyor belts and pulleys with Lauren Cook.
But wait – there’s more! Build your own water filtration system with Sara Hamidovic of VET Environmental Engineering and launch balloon rockets with IU physics professor Jacqueline Allison. Make cards come to light and life with William Terry and animate your own videos with Tyler Wells.
Whether you want to move the world or redesign it entirely, Special STEM Sunday: Explore Engineering will give you the tools you need to excel. Come to WonderLab on Sunday, February 17 to get started – the event is free with admission.
