Join BWS SWE for a Parent and Educator Program for parents and educators of students interested in STEM. This event runs parallel to the Rube Goldberg Contest.


PEP will be held while students are setting up their Rube Goldberg Machines and participants will have the opportunity to see the machines in action during the competition!
