!!!Hands on Learning and Field Trips in Renewable Energy and Green Manufacturing!!!
When: Monday July 22nd to Friday August 2nd, 2019
Time: 10:00 AM-3:30 PM
Where: East Carolina University
The College of Engineering and Technology (CET) at East Carolina University (ECU) is partnering with middle schools in rural eastern North Carolina (ENC) to offer summer camps focused on renewable energy and green manufacturing. The objectives of this educational opportunity are to a) excite students about pursuing professional and research careers in science-related areas; b) enhance students' proficiencies in science and mathematics; and c) encourage and motivate students to persist with science and mathematics education through scientific inquiry based hands-on learning.
The project is held during the summer at the ECU campus and will bring together approximately seventy-five (75) middle school students over a period of three (3) years. Each year, approximately twenty-five (25) 7th grade students, exhibiting a strong potential for STEM, will be actively recruited. Working collaboratively with STEM East, NC Society of Hispanic Professionals (NCSHP), teachers, and parents we plan to recruit underserved and unrepresented STEM oriented middle school students.
