The Philadelphia Younger Member Forum kicked off its 2017-2018 K-12 outreach initiative by visiting a high school engineering class. Students learned about the multiple disciplines within the field of civil engineering and what it takes to earn an engineering degree.
Following the presentation, students built and tested foil boats to see whose could sustain the most weight. The hands-on activity served as a starting point for the students’ unit on buoyancy and an upcoming underwater robot competition.
