More than 300 students and parents participated in the first-ever event at the school, which was sponsored by Flint Hills Resources and presented by The Works Museum to teach students about engineering design and how engineers use math and science to solve problems.

Wiring circuits and building bridges out of candy were among the other kid-friendly, hands-on engineering activities on offer.
