Duck and Hover!

Duck ‘n’ Hover is a teen engineering event on Saturday May 11th, 2019!

In this free event, teens in grades 8 through 12 will design and build a wind-powered device that can lift a payload of rubber ducks three stories high. Students will be assigned a team to participate in the engineering challenge. Each team will be led by a near-peer mentor. No previous engineering experience is necessary, and participants will be provided a t-shirt and lunch! Families of teens are welcome to attend the afternoon portion of the event and watch the timed team trials provided they purchase museum exhibit halls admission (or use a family or library membership). There will also be engineering activities around the building for visitors to participate in, as well as local engineers that will be sharing their work with visitors.
