Event FlyerWe had a great lunch program today. Erica Beeler, China Lake Engineer, shared information about the great program to encourage 6th, 7th and 8th grade young men the importance of math and science skills, The Young Engineers and Scientists of Ridgecrest Young Men's Conference will be held September 17th at McLean Lab on NAWCWD.

Registration for the 2016 conference will start on Monday, August 22!  There are two different ways to register:


School registration:  Students in the local Ridgecrest area  will receive a registration form at their school.  The form must be filled out, signed by a parent or guardian, and then returned to the school.  Payment for school registration forms MUST accompany the paper registration form.  Registration forms will be marked with the time and date received so as to be competitive with electronic registrations.

Electronic registration:  An electronic registration form will be uploaded to this website at 9 AM on Monday, August 22nd.  Fill out the registration form and click the "Submit" button.  You will then be redirected to PayPal, where you MUST submit a payment; failure to submit a payment through PayPal at the time of registration will result in the registration not being submitted.

Workshops held in the past presented such diverse topics as: aerodynamic water bottles, developing slime, building bridges out of spaghetti, and walking on top of fluids! The conference costs each participant $10. This provides attendance in 3 of the many workshops, a YES! t-shirt, and lunch.
All boys in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade (middle, private, or home school) are invited to attend. It is important to register as soon as possible since the workshops fill quickly. Workshops will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis, however we make every attempt to place the students in at least one of their top choices. Return your registration form to your school or submit your registration online as soon as possible!

Our goals are similar to the local Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) conference offered to middle school girls.  If you are interested in the EYH program, click here to check out their website.
