Inspire our Future Engineers

by Sandy Ortez

GoEngineer has some exciting news to report on the youth front. For the second year in a row, we are sponsoring 52 middle school students from Mt. Nebo Jr. High to participate in the SeaPerch program.

On their own time, often after school, these students build an underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) from a low-cost kit, following a curriculum that meets national learning standards. Throughout the project, students learn engineering concepts like mathematics, science, robotics, and technical applications, plus, problem solving and teamwork.

Then, as a team, they get to take their project to the next level and compete! They launch their ROV on March 19th, 2014 at the Lehi Legacy Center in a district-wide one day competition with the goal of qualifying for the National SeaPerch Challenge. GoEngineer will be there to cheer you on Mt Nebo! Last year “our” students took four out of the five winning slots. Their science instructor and volunteer director for this project, Darwin Deming, expects them to be a very strong competitor again this year. We can’t wait!

In addition, GoEngineer will be hosting another round of fun and educational SolidWorks Kids’ Camps this summer! With such impressive, inquisitive and technical youth out there, how could we not? We are happy to create this opportunity to introduce the younger generation (ages 10-18 years) to CAD design and 3D Printing.  Registration coming soon, at multiple GoEngineer locations, for each and every one of you future engineering geniuses!  #goengineer #geniusinme
