2016 DiscoverE Family Day K-12 Outreach
AIME partnered with volunteers from SME’s Washington, DC section and staff from the National Mining Association on a booth at DiscoverE’s Family Day, Saturday, February 27, 2016. The organization expected 14,000 Pre-K through middle-schoolers and their parents between 10a and 4:30p. AIME’s “Make Your Own Toothpaste” and “Minerals in Your House” activities were two of 30 learning interactions visitors could have with the major engineering and scientific organizations there to encourage them to consider engineering as a field of study/profession. This is the third year that AIME has hosted the booth for the groups.
