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 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 26, 2022.

Parents should complete registration forms for each of their own children. RPI will lead and engage the children in four 35-minute hands-on, interactive activities.
We encourage parents to accompany their children during the program and help with the technical aspect, yet we also understand that some parents work on weekends and may not be available to accompany their child/children.
