CMT’s Emily Munday volunteered for the Society of Women Engineers – SWE (Central Illinois Section) helping children make paper cup parachutes, motor-driven artwork, market artbots, K’NEX structures and they learned about hot and cold by using a thermal camera. The programmable robots were also a big hit and children were excited to take home the parachutes they made and a 3D printed catapult.
