Overall, the goal of our pre-college program will be to improve attitudes towards STEM through formal and informal engagement with cycles of scientific inquiry and engineering design processes.
We plan to have long-term engagement with students through multiple programs and allow for intergeneration learning by engaging POETS undergraduates, graduates and faculty with our pre-college activities.
The focus of the pre-college educational activities is to:
- Design (using engineering clubs and the RET teachers),
- Implement (at partner pre-college institutions), and
- Disseminate (using publications, conferences, and other media)
