School Day at Thayer School’s Formula Hybrid International Competition in May attracted middle school students from around New Hampshire for an up-close look at how college teams design and build hybrid racecars. School Day is one of several ways Thayer School opens the engineering door to the public. Thayer students regularly share their engineering enthusiasm by mentoring local youngsters through LEGO League, an After-School Science Program, Junior Solar Sprints, robotics competitions, and similar projects. And every April Thayer School invites the public to an Open House featuring tours of research labs, demonstrations of student projects, and opportunities for kids to sit in racecars, operate remote-control robots, and experience the ingenuity and fun of engineering.
