Discovery Science Center (DSC), presented by Taco Bell, is proud to bring exciting hands-on exhibits, demonstrations and speaker presentations to celebrate National Engineer’s Week February 16 – 23, 2013.
The week begins on February 16th with interactive demonstrations that will allow guests to put their engineering talents to the test. Attendees can build their very own block tower and Catenary Arch as they gain practical knowledge of S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering, and math) principles. Also, the first 500 kids to visit DSC beginning Saturday, February 16th will receive a free water rocket building kit!
Engineer’s Week concludes on February 23rd with the thrilling and always entertaining “Egg Drop Competition.” This annual competition has kids and adults of all ages design and build an Egg Transport Vehicle (ETV) – a device that will house and protect an egg from breaking as it falls to the ground from various heights. Guests can compete to win prizes including an Annual Membership to DSC!
