Our programs target elementary, junior high and high school students. We involve current engineering students as much as possible so that they can share their enthusiasm with others. Several programs are specifically designed to reach out to under-represented minorities and women.
K-12 Events and Programs
The College of Engineering plans many K-12 events, both on- and off-campus, to educate the next generation of engineers about majors, careers, research, and innovation in various fields of engineering – of course tailored for an interesting and age-appropriate hands-on message.
We also annually host summer programs and camps to give students a more interactive and in-depth engineering experience.
Our outreach team provides tools to help K-12 teachers spark interest in science, math, and engineering by:
- Building and distributing interactive lesson plans.
- Helping teachers request an engineering visit – your school or ours?
- Building a library of resources available for 7-day check-out.
- Hosting teaching workshops to help teachers prepare future engineers.
Parents and Alumni
Our outreach staff is unfortunately limited by time, so we recruit the help of parents and alumni who can serve as volunteers to help us take our engineering message around Northern Utah and the Rocky Mountain region.
