What is Exploring Engineering?

Exploring Engineering is a program designed for teenage boys and girls to find out first-hand what real engineers do, through hands-on activities and demonstrations, to decide if engineering is a career they may want to pursue.

Who can participate?

Exploring Engineering is for high school students. Parents are encouraged to stay for meetings.

How often do you meet?

We typically meet once a month from the fall through late spring for 1.5 hours. Each meeting will cover a different facet of engineering, through hands-on actives, tours, discussions, and presentations. Schedules, once published are available below.

Is there a cost?

Yes. The Exploring program is a branch of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). To participate in a post, you must be a member of the BSA, which costs $45. Entech Engineering does not charge any additional fees.
