Moving & Shaking – An Introduction to Engineering

Offered through the Gifted Resource Council

Every year for the Fall Learning Lab

Grades 6 – 8

Instructors: Patricia Weisensee and Jessica Wagenseil

Will you be a mover and shaker in future engineering research? Test your mettle by working with Washington University (WU) professors in their scientific laboratories. Explore basic engineering principles and consider some of the problems facing the world today, everything from water treatment to wind power, developing nanostructured materials for biological use – different professors teach each year with their own research focus. Class meets weekly on the WU campus at Whitaker Hall.
