Allen Sponsors Troop in FormulaGIRL Race

Allen Engineering’s Mississippi office is proud to sponsor Troop 3326 of Madison, Mississippi.

Recently the Girl Scouts of Greater Mississippi Metro Jackson hosted the inaugural FormulaGIRL event, a  pinewood derby modeled after the Boy Scout program. Mississippi Lt. Governor Tate Reeves was emcee of the event.

The AllenES troop made their cars in compliance with the derby rules and raced a minimum of three times. Awards were given for top speed, design, and creativity. Troops were also being observed during the event and were recognized for sportsmanship at the end of the day.

To participate and earn an engineering badge, each troop held meetings where sponsor firms talked to the troop about science and engineering concepts. AllenES staff led two of these meetings and it was an educational experience for all involved.
