Six volunteers from the Florida Theta Chapter of Tau Beta Pi, at Florida International University, recently hosted three MindSET activity sessions for students at St. Brendan Elementary School in Miami, FL. Approximately, 45 elementary students built penny launchers, constructed marshmallow structures, and learned about circuits. FL Theta MindSET Chair Daniela S. Gil, FL Q 2017, led the MindSET activities and took pictures. Below is an image of the volunteers.
