Sign up for the MESA +BGCH Engineering Program!

Do you like to design, build or invent things?  Have you ever had an idea on how to make something better?  Ever wonder why a surfboard, smart phone or bike looks or looks the way it does?  If so, then meet us in the KIS HatchLab to do some engineering.

This winter BGCH is offering 20 members the opportunity to join forces with two KIS teachers and MESA USA in the Prosthetic Arm Challenge.  Our kids will participate alongside 30,000 students from across the country and use the engineering design process to build a trans‐radial prosthetic arm.  The teams will be judged on performance (through a Distance Accuracy Relay, Object Relocation Task), design efficiency, academic displays and oral presentations.

Who: BGCH Windward Members (7th and 8th graders)

When: January 29-April 28; 3:15 p.m.-5 p.m.

More details:

  • Permission slip will need to be signed
  • Agree to stay one day each week until 5pm
  • Both parents and students agree to provide feedback (survey, talk, etc)
  • Attend a Engineering night at BGCH
