MOSH Camp-In - Think Like an Engineer - J

Sat Apr 28, 6:00 PM - Sun Apr 29, 8:00 AM
Museum of Science and History, 1025 Museum Circle, Jacksonville, FL 32207 Map
Girl Program, STEM

Juniors, join the experts at MOSH for a new mechanical engineering program!  In our Think Like an Engineer Journey Camp-In, you will learn how to think like an engineer by participating in hands-on design challenges. Learn how to brainstorm ways to solve a problem, design prototypes, test the design to see what does and doesn't work, then improve your design. To engineers, failure is a good thing because every time a design fails, you learn something and can make it better. Juniors will also be inspired by a special guest speaker! Enjoy a late night pizza and continental breakfast. 

Check-in will begin at 5:30 p.m. and the workshop will begin promptly at 6 p.m. The museum will be open for exploration between check-in and the start of the workshop. The Camp-In ends Sunday morning at 8 a.m.

MOSH Camp-In - Think Like an Engineer is a part of the Voya STEM Career Initiative presented by Voya Financial, a program of the Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC).
