El Paso Water set to host DiscoverE-Building Curiosity

Next month, El Paso Water is hosting a free, family friendly event called DiscoverE – Building Curiosity.

“We’re thrilled to be able to showcase engineering as an exciting career path for El Paso’s youth,” said April Lopez, water conservation specialist for El Paso Water. “We want to ensure that El Paso and EPWater have a bright future, and that means inspiring students to problem solve and develop engineering interests that can positively impact and contribute to our city’s infrastructure.”

Engineering firms from across El Paso will be showcasing the latest in robotics and technology, thanks to a partnership with EPWater’s TecH2O Learning Center and the American Council of Engineering Companies. Families will get a hands-on experience while manipulating robotics, operating cranes and learning about the region’s watershed and water and wastewater systems.

“The future designers of our world will get a first-hand look at how El Paso engineers are using robotics to improve and grow the city – from the ground up,” EP Water officials added.

In addition, robotics teams entering in the Lego League Challenge at the University of Texas at El Paso will share how they perform tasks and show off their engineering marvels.

The Lego League Competition is designed as a challenge for youth to develop problem-solving concepts to shape a better future using modern-day tools like robotics.

“Visitors can come for the robotics and also stay for popcorn and a free screening of the Lego Movie showing at 12:30pm,” said Lopez. “We will also have EPWater’s award-winning parade float called Water Wars parked in front. It’s modeled after Star Wars-themed Legos and quite impressive to see in person.”

DiscoverE – Building Curiosity will be held February 22 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and all are welcome. For more information, visit www.tecH2O.org or call 915-621-2000.
