BEST Engineering Workshop
NASA's Beginning Engineering,
Science and Technology program through the National Aeronautics and Space
Administration is a hands-on engineering program. This series of 10
workshops is conducted on Mondays and Thursdays in the fall. Level I is
for grades 4-5 and Level II is for grades 6-8. Students will work in
groups to complete NASA "missions" by designing and creating
prototypes with supplied materials. Each prototype will be tested against
predetermined parameters. Students will also learn about past, current
and future NASA missions.
Upon complete of the program,
students will be awarded the NASA's BEST Student Award certificate through the
National Aeronautical and Space Administration and a t-shirt! Each level
is designed to accommodate 20 students with exciting hands-on activities.
