CLASS LIST AND DESCRIPTION:    

Class A:

What “Wood” You Make with a Tree.

Trees and forests provide us many products from wood for paper, heating, cooking, buildings, musical instruments, crafts and toys, nuts and fruits, to medicines and mushrooms. Selling “special forest products” could be an opportunity to start your own business or earn extra money. Participants will make and take home a marshmallow popper.17

 

Class B:

See Tracks? Think Train!

Nearly every three hours, someone is struck by a train in the U.S. During this presentation, students will learn the skills they need to safely walk, bike, skate or ride near the railroad tracks. Students will also learn where it’s safe to play, where it’s not, and what they need to do when they get to a crossing.17

 

Class C:

WIRED: Using Tools to Make Keychains.

Students use tools that electricians and plumbers use every day to make cool keychains.17

In this class, you will hook up various electrical devices and make them work. 17

 

Class F:

Medical Device Engineering

This class will include a brief presentation on cardiology medical devices that the presenter (and others) designed and brought to market worldwide.
