Fall Engineering Club at MUN

If you are looking for a fun and educational way for your 12-14 year old to spend some Saturday mornings this fall, this just might be the answer!

The Fall Engineering Club will be meeting on November 16, 23, 30 and December 7 in the Engineering Building. Sessions will be from 9:00am – 12:00pm on each of these days and activities will include a wide range of engineering topics including soldering, 3D printing, robotics, design challenges and more! This club is being offered at no charge, but spaces will be limited. Registration will cover all four sessions, so please consider your availability for all sessions prior to registering. It would be great if we could expect a full group each week but we understand that illness and other unplanned circumstances may occur.

Participants will be responsible for bringing along their own snacks and they must be signed in, and out, by a parent/ guardian each week.

Online registration for this club will open on Friday, November 1 at 12:00 noon.
