Family Engineering Event At Eugene Public Library

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

On January 19th, 2015, the Eugene Public Library in Eugene, OR held a Family Engineering event for local elementary children and their families. About 130 attendees showed up for the “Engineer This!” event, with more than 80 people flooding in within the first several minutes.

The day was coordinated with the University of Oregon’s Science on Demand program, which helps organize science-themed events aimed at preparing students for the next generation of academic science standards.

Students enjoyed engaging in engineering challenges such as “Artistic Robots” and “Assembly Line” which were adapted from the Family Engineering Activity & Event Planning Guide.

After its conclusion, this successful community outreach event was featured in the Eugene Register-Guard newspaper.
