Senior & Ambassador Journey Award Day
The Think Like an Engineering Journey Award Day will be hosted by local professional engineers who are members of the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE) and UNLV students. Girl Scouts will learn about the different types of engineers, what engineers do and design thinking. Girls will learn to think like an engineer by participating in hands-on design challenges that will require the girls to think creatively, build a prototype, test their design, and redesign.
The content for the Think Like an Engineer Journey was developed in partnership with WGBH's Design Squad Global.
