Formerly known as Engineers In Training

Science is understanding and comprehending the world
around us (from the Latin sciere: "to know")

Engineering is shaping the world to our needs
(from the Latin ingenarere: "to create")

Explorations in Engineering is a sequence of workshops designed to introduce motivated middle-school students to the design process of modern engineering through the exploration and development of small scale systems. Participants develop techniques in the measurement and collection of experimental data, the use of computational models to process scientific data and aid design, and the construction of engineered systems.
