The Saint Louis Science Center is continuing its successful partnership with Tau Beta Pi- a national Engineering Honors Society to provide STEM Engineering based programs for children grades 3-6. MindSET is a national initiative led by Tau Beta Pi to help K-12 students get interested in STEM careers by organizing a variety of programs that are both fun and educational. At each session, MindSET attendees will learn how engineers use their knowledge of Newton’s Laws, gravity, and strength of materials to create optimal projectile motion and structural design. After covering the engineering design process, attendees will use this knowledge to compete in a design challenge combing both catapults and towers of their own creation. Cost: $5 per person RSVP Required: to reserve your spot contact Pbraasch@slsc.org
