At its core, engineering is really just figuring out how to solve problems when you don't have all the information in front of you. Engineer Steve Nordhauser of the Tech Valley Center of Gravity, a makerspace in Troy, NY, will take you through the eight steps needed to approach a problem and see it through to completion. Low-tech robotics instructor, English Major, and TVCOG Board Member Kathy Ceceri -- author of the family hands-on activity books "Geek Mom" and "Robotics: Discover the Science and Technology of the Future" -- will help keep the discussion at a level everybody can understand.
