Embry-Riddle Hosts Volusia Students for Engineering Workshop

Embry-Riddle Aeronuatical University hosted more than 200 Volusia County Schools students on Saturday, March 24, for the Introduce a Girl to Engineering Workshop. Third, fourth and fifth graders from 11 elementary schools learned everything from engineering design processes and aerodynamics, to thermodynamics and civil and chemical engineering, all while building fun experiments and working in teams.
Some activities included creating slime that changes colors based on temperature; constructing a device that will protect an egg when dropped from two stories high; developing non-Newtonian liquids (liquids that act like solids); and building a boat to understand buoyancy and weight distribution.
