The School of Engineering has a dedicated Engineering K-12 Outreach Center that allows us to be involved in many outreach activities and programs. We have the ability to host small groups or our faculty can travel to schools and groups to present engineering related activities that are fun, educational and get the kids involved. Here are some of the things that we do:
Please contact Melanie Ford at email@example.com or 814-898-6685 to schedule a program or if you have any questions.
Please visit the Engineering K-12 Outreach Center website for more information.
Engineers or retired engineers in the area who would like to volunteer and get involved with our outreach efforts are welcome. The activities are already created and ready to go; you only need to participate and share your experiences. Engineers from Women in Technology at GE Transportation, as well as LORD Corporation are involved in some of our programs. You or your company can be, too!
The Women in Engineering program & Engineering K-12 Outreach Center is partly supported by the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program of the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development. If you are interested in participating in this program, please contact our Development Office at 814-898-6159. Companies that have participated in the past are: Eriez Magnetics, Lord Corporation, North Penn Pipe & Supply Co., Snap-tite, Inc. and Verizon Services Corp.
