TechShop marks National Engineers Week with special programs for kids, parents

Posted February 11, 2013

TechShop in north Raleigh will have a special activity day to mark National Engineers Week later this month.

From noon to 5 p.m., Feb. 23, TechShop, a do-it-yourself workshop, will offer an afternoon of special classes for students from elementary school to high school. Tours will be offered for parents. It's all free, but children need to be registered to make sure there's a spot in the age appropriate group at your preferred time.

In addition to the classes, TechShop will have some special outdoor activities including a large Fresnel lens, a Trebuchet and an electric car from Duke Energy, along with a 4-cycle engine.

I'm told that if spots fill up quickly, they'll add a few more. Check the website for details and to register (and read my earlier post about TechShop for more information about what it offers).

    It would be nice if my child earned a certificate to go towards a high school/college degree after those classes. The prices are "ouch".
