Help Get Students Interested in Engineering!

puff_mobileEngineers Week (EWeek) is an international initiative aimed at helping children discover the world of engineering by sending professionals into the classroom. In Central Texas our ‘Discover Engineering’ school visits begin in February and continue through the end of the school year. 

Classroom visits involve a hands-on activity, discussion about the importance of engineers in society and goodies for students and teachers, they usually occur during the school day and last 1-2 hours depending on the number of classrooms being visited.

Volunteers may choose the school they wish to visit or be assigned based on geographical and grade preferences.  TEEC is happy to arrange a Discover Engineering info and training session (60-90 minute sessions during lunch work well) at your organization to show everyone how easy and fun it is to get involved!  Check out  www.centexeweek.org to learn more about EWeek in Central Texas.

Contact Katie Kizziar, kkizziar@skillpointalliance.org to set up an info session for your organization.
