ISEK camp

Young problem-solvers

The College of Engineering's "Explore Engineering" half-day camp for 6- to 9-year-olds features activities such as "balloon races" (left), which demonstrate how different forces act on a "flying" balloon; and "to float a boat," in which students learn, hands-on, about volume, mass, buoyancy and gravity. Explore Engineering was offered three times this summer by the college's ISEK (Iowa State Engineering Kids) program. Photos by Gary Clarke.
