Volunteer engineers from the Charlotte-Metrolina Society of Women Engineers (SWE) Section and National Society of Black Engineers – Charlotte Alumni Extension Chapter (NSBE-CAEC) started as  “Citizen Teachers” for a ten week engineering apprenticeship through Citizen Schools at CMS’ Martin Luther King Middle School on February 7, 2013.  The ten week apprenticeship will showcase the field of engineering to 20 sixth grade students.  The students will meet with volunteer “Citizen Teachers” from SWE and NSBE-CAEC weekly to complete hands on activities showing how engineers solve everyday problems to make the world a better place.
