The Society of Women Engineers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (R.P.I.) invites parents/guardians and their children in grades 3 to 5 to attend Virtual Exploring Engineering Day (EED). EED is a FREE half-day program that introduces children to the field of engineering through fun hands-on activities led by college students studying engineering. Children who enjoy solving puzzles and learning about STEM are sure to enjoy this program, as well as learn how engineers make our lives easier, safer, healthier, and fun!
Exploring Engineering Day will take place through an online platform called Gather.town, on Saturday, February 27, 2022.

Registration will remain open until January 10, 2021, but register early because the program fills quickly! An email will be sent out shortly after we receive your registration to confirm you are registered or if you are on a waiting list.

Parents should complete registration forms for each of their children that wish to attend. RPI students will lead and engage the children in four 30-minute hands-on, interactive activities.
We encourage parents to accompany their children during the program and help with the technical aspect, yet we understand that some parents work on weekends and may not be available to accompany their child/children.
