Attendees learned from representatives from Civic Air Patrol, Howard University, Catholic University of America, and the National Society of Black Engineers. Engaging experiments such as the soda can implosions captured the attention of adults and children alike. "It was amazing, the soda can was crushed really fast just by the water!" exclaimed a seventh grade student. Many people were amazed by the 3D printers. Spectators could pick an object on a computer and watch it print as a three-dimensional object. The only question that remains is, how will they top this next year!
The engineering program has been very busy this semester. In addition to hosting the STEM expo, Carroll students were invited to present at the Georgetown Day School, and are preparing for their first ever National Society of Black Engineers national conference in Philadelphia, PA.
