Engineering is fun. Let these engineers prove it to your kids!
Students will go through 3 activities focused on different kinds of engineering taught by local technologists. The day starts with a STEM Expo which are small activities provided by local companies, surrounding universities and professional organizations. Then they will break the students into groups to begin the 3 (1 hr a piece) activities.
While the students are learning, there will be a separate event for the adults. Organizers will educate adults on everything they might need to keep the students interested in STEM, college prep, financial aid, and even community opportunities for internships. Adults will also learn their own STEM activity that they will be able to take home to teach the students what they learned.
