An engineering summer camp for middle school students to explore different types of engineering through several hands-on, team-based design projects

 

What is engineering and what do engineers do? In this camp, we will explore the important role engineers play in our world, which includes designing, improving, and testing everything we use on a daily basis. From bridges and roads to appliances and automobiles to smart phones and video games, engineers have a hand in creating objects we use constantly. During the camp, students will participate in daily hands-on activities that put them in the role of an engineer. Students will learn that great designs only come about through trial and error and perseverance.

Safety & Security Tips for Retail Businesses

June 18, 2018 @ Building on Baldwin
Time: 12:00 PM

Presented by the Martinsville City Police
Because of the potential for violence, which could result in injuries to customers and workers, robbery is the most significant crime exposure for small retail stores. While employee theft, burglary, and fraud do not pose the same risk of bodily harm as robbery, their economic impact on a retailer can be significant. This informative lecture from local law enforcement experts will discuss ways for a retail establishment to identify its crime exposure and implement procedures to control the possibilities.
