The girls completed all the requirements for the Junior Badge "Product Designer." Amelia teamed up with two Juniors from other troops to finish the requirements of the badge. The SWE students also gave the girls a tour of North Campus, including the new EECS (Electrical Engineering and Computer Science) building, Piedpont Commons, various computer labs, study areas and the library. We also visited the 3D printing lab on campus, and they demonstrated how the printers work. Very cool!
Here's a few pictures and a video of the event.

|Design time! The girls had to design a vehicle that could carry 4 eggs down a slope (with a crash at the end) without the eggs cracking!|
|The team -- they were very proud of their design. And my daughter won the coin toss to take it home.|
|Their final design -- including names for all the eggs. Yes -- all boys' names. They decided that boys could be smashed for science.|
