    Design - Build - Test 

    Our online store is now open! Click on "All Products" in order to see the whole store. You can either buy directly from the website or you can let Mr. BP know what you want to order and use your club money for your order.

    Our goal is to compete to the best of our ability and to help others compete to the best of their ability. This club is open to all EASD 7th-12th grade students who are interested in designing, building, and testing things. The club meets after school every Tuesday from 2:50 - 4:00 in the middle school room 1311. Students select what they want to do from the list of competitions on this page. They can also find their own competition. They form teams and prepare for the competitions during club time and on their own time. You can see Mr. BP if you have any questions about the Etown Engineering Club. 

    What will you do at the meetings? - This link also has information on fundraising.
