🌎🚀Our engineers are out of this world and are inspiring the next generation of problem solvers. This week we celebrated #EngineersWeek with local 5th graders by challenging them to a unique packaging engineering mission. Students stretched their STEM muscles and worked creatively in teams to develop M&M package prototypes for space travel. Students followed our engineering design process to create packages that were compact, easy to open, and could keep the M&Ms from floating away in a zero gravity environment. We were so impressed by all their ideas and know they would make great professional engineers one day. Welcome to the future of engineering! #Eweek2024 #DiscoverEngineering ... See MoreSee Less
