This NASA-funded program is for girls entering 5th-9th grade to compete together in the Keep it Cool Engineering Design Challenge (EDC). Participants will complete the EDC by the end of the week and will make a 5-minute video or slide show of their findings to submit to NASA. You can either register in a group of 4 and work in-person with your team or you will be put into a group and will work virtually.   Each of the 12 groups will be given supplies that they will need to pick up from the library. If your team is working virtually, you will need to select a team leader to handle the supplies and execution of the EDC.  This is a weeklong course and requires each participants full attention and participation.
