Update on Educating Young Engineers!

EYE is currently working on coordinating future Saturday programs at Saratoga, with the next date set to be February 28 th.  The new programs will have a different theme; music.  Activities and logistics of the program are currently in the development phase.  We aim to create activities that successfully incorporate music into engineering-based challenges, exposing elementary level children to design processes and ideas that they would not otherwise encounter.  We have been working with Shen on running an initial “All about Engineering” Saturday program.  We also seek to reconnect with Ballard school in South Glens Falls in order to run a Saturday program later this year, following up on a previous Saturday program.  EYE continues to support weekly LEGO clubs at both Dorothy Nolan and Division Street and continued efforts are being made to become a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
