On July 18, Dallas SWE partnered with Fort Worth SWE to reach out to attendees of Moon Day at the Frontiers of Flight Museum! This is a great event to celebrate the anniversary of the first Moon landing with guest speakers, scientists, and engineers from across the aerospace industry.  We showed students how to build electronic circuits with resistors, potentiometers, LEDs and buzzers. Fort Worth SWE brought their aluminum foil boat station where kids constructed a vessel from one sheet of aluminum foil, then tested it in a tub of water to see how many washer weights it could hold before sinking. Hint: surface area is an important consideration! We had a lot of fun, thanks to the Frontiers of Flight Museum for another spectacular event, and thanks to Fort Worth SWE for joining us! Check out the photos below!
