CURENT Education Outreach has held three Engineering Nights since the first of the year with plans for a fourth one on March 29th.
The dates of the Engineering Nights and their attendence numbers are:
- Gresham Middle School - Feb. 21st, 6-7:30pm, 30 students
- Spring Hill Elementary School - Feb. 23rd, 5-7pm, 60 students + parents
- Vine Middle School - Mar. 7th, 5-7pm, 40 students + parents
Over 25 students from UTK helped with the events by leading activities and donating approximately 3 hours of their time. Activities were selected from a broad range of engineering disciplines but all were hands-on and multiple activities were related to electricity at each event. One of the most popular activities was solar car racing. A gift of a mini-quadcopter was provided as a gift at the middle school events.
The next Engineering Night will be at Whittle Springs Middle School - Mar 29th, 5-7pm.
