TINKER, an engineering camp for high school girls, kicked off with a team building exercise. The camp was hosted by the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences on Aug. 7-11, 2017.
In an activity sponsored by Fisher Price, the company provided toys to the campers who got to disassemble them and analyze the inner workings.
The reverse engineering process helps students gain a better understanding of how the product works.
One camper works on tearing down a toy provided by Fisher Price. Tinkering activities can be beneficial in helping girls to discover an interest in engineering.
For their environmental engineering project, the girls were tasked with designing and testing a water filtration system.
During Cosmetic Chemistry, campers had fun concocting pedicure bath bombs while learning about the chemistry behind the recipe.
