What is Exploring Engineering?

Engineering can be a tough field and career to explain and understand. Exploring Engineering is a program designed for teenage boys and girls to find out first-hand what local, real-world engineers do, through hands-on activities, demonstrations, and field trips to help them decide if engineering is a career they may want to pursue.
