This February through April, 2016, SWE-CM in partnership with the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) and American Society of Civil Engineers will host an “Engineers Are Epic!” apprenticeship in connection with Citizen Schools. Sixth and Seventh graders at Martin Luther King Middle School, Charlotte, NC will have an opportunity to experience hands on problem solving over the nine week apprenticeship with activities such as
building a catapult, creating slime and building an electrical circuit. These are STEM activities (Agilent Kits). Following the apprenticeship the students present a WOW? event to the community where they teach back what they have learned. Become a Citizen Teacher!
