Welcome to the world of mechanical engineering!

 

People have been playing games for thousands of years. Some are active, like hide-and-seek and soccer. Others, such as tic-tac-toe and Monopoly, are board games. Anyone can use their imagination and what they have on hand to make a game, just like an engineer. Engineers create things that solve problems, using simple steps to come up with ideas, make samples, test them out, and then improve their ideas. You’ll use the same steps to create your own board game.

  1. Come up with an idea for your board game
  2. Design a spinner for your game
  3. Test your game and make it better.

 

When you’ve earned this badge, you will know how to create your ow board game and understand what inventors and engineers do.

This is an in-person event, with a maximum number of 10 participants to ensure safe distancing and caution. All participants are required to wear a mask, bring their own water bottle, and social distance.
