Palacios POWER SET and Power GRID Afternoon of Engineering
April 12, 2017
On Tuesday, April 11th, Power GRID came to Palacios High School
to participate in an Afternoon of Engineering.
Members began the event by Skyping with Ms. Sarah Beasley, a 3rd
year Computer Science major at Texas A&M - College Station. She
spoke about how she came to love computer science, why she chose
A&M, and what she wants to do with her degree, which is go into
the defense field.
Following this talk, Power GRID girls did a variety of
engineering based activities. They learned basic Java programming
to play games, used engineering and problem solving to build the
tallest tower and to construct something they were unable to see
based only on their team members drawings, and used logic to
complete an obstacle course and a human puzzle. The event was a
great success that brought together both groups for a time of fun,
learning, and mentoring.
