The Tech Challenge Workshop

Saturday February 1
1:00 pm to 2:30 pm 
imax/presentations/
In preparation for The Tech Challenge, students delve more deeply into the engineering design process in these 90-minute team-building workshops.  They develop teamwork and other skills they’ll need to create an innovative solution and successful team experience, from brainstorming and presenting ideas for feedback to designing, building, testing, and innovating through failure.  Students are encouraged to take risks and fail early to maximize learning, and they also learn to document their creative process through a design journal.

Do you have what it takes to be a Tech Detective? Juniors begin by sharpening their observation skills through brain challenging puzzles.  Next, they learn how to obtain and analyze fingerprints from a crime scene. Finally, Juniors learn about DNA-what it is, what it does, and how it helps solve crimes.  They then get to perform an experiment to extract real DNA!
