West palm beach — The fifth annual “Engineering Family Fun Day” will be held Saturday, Nov. 3 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. in Dreher Park, Pavilion 3, 1301 Summit Blvd. (across from the Dreher Park Zoo) in West Palm Beach.
The organizers say that South Florida students, along with their families, teachers and counselors will be able to enjoy a fun-filled and educational event.
The events’ main focuses are on educating the community regarding the opportunities available in engineering and inspiring an interest in the areas of math and science in students from 4th to 12th grade.
The Palm Beach Alumni Extension of the National Society of Black Engineers and the Society of Women Southeast Florida Section are co-hosts.
The organizers say the event will increase the students’ as well as their parents’, teachers’, and counselors’ awareness and knowledge of engineering and other technical fields.
The event is to involve eight booths. Each sponsored booth will present a hands-on engineering-related activity by which the students, parents, and engineers can interact with each other. For example the Bottle Rocket involves aerospace engineering and Making Polymers involves science and chemistry.
