UWindsor students to offer hands-on engineering activities to local children

Engineering and education students have developed a day of hands-on learning activities for children and families, Saturday, April 21, at Canada South Science City.

Bridging Worlds: An Engineering Education Challenge will give children seven years and older a chance to engage in four activities – constructing a boat and setting it afloat, making a working model of a set of lungs, building a tower and testing its strengths, and cleaning spilled oil from water and feathers.

The day is sponsored by the Engineer-in-Residence program, an educational outreach project of Professional Engineers of Ontario, in partnership with the University of Windsor faculties of education and engineering.

It runs noon to 4 p.m. at the museum, located at 930 Marion Avenue. Registration is free with paid museum admission, $8 for adults, $7 for students, and $6 for children 3 to 12 years old.
