Engineering for Good


Creative engineering with real impact! You have the power to design a better world! Join our Engineering for Good Camp to create an invention that makes a difference in someone else’s life. It can be as simple as helping a friend learn Morse code, creating a memory alarm for medication (or to feed the dog), or fabricating a bionic arm out of LEGOs. You will brainstorm ideas and then use the Engineering Design Process to design, create, test, and refine a product that makes a difference in someone else’s life. At the end of the week, you will present your unique product to your peers by creating a skit, a print or video advertisement to explain what you’ve invented and how it can help make life better for the customer. Bring your passion for good and your ideas to create a better world.
