  • Young Engineers and Scientists! Get ready for this year's Young Engineers and Scientists (YES!) Conference! The 5th annual Young Engineers and Scientists Conference will be held at the Dr. William B. McLean Building at China Lake on Saturday, April 5, 2014. YES! is a conference designed to heighten the awareness of young men in the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades to the importance of adequate math and science preparation The YES! conference has two main goals. The first goal is to encourage middle school students to take higher level math classes in order to keep all of their options open. The second main goal is to spark student interest by having them participate in hands-on workshops. Through involvement in hands-on workshops, participants will be introduced to applications in math, science, and technology for traditional and non-traditional careers. Our goals are similar to the local Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) conference offered for middle school girls. If you are interested in the EYH program, click here to check out their website. 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 10 workshops, receipt of a YES! t-shirt, and lunch. All boys in 6th, 7th, or 8th grade (middle school, private school, 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.
