STEM outreach – Young Volunteers

The ECP’s Committees on Student Engagement and Younger Members would like to

CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS:

One of the main goals of the Engineers’ Club of Philadelphia is to educate the public on what we do in our STEM related fields. One way we’re doing this is through student outreach, and we’ve recently partnered with several organizations including EducationWorks, Engineering for Kids and iPraxis who provide the type of outreach that is in line with the Club’s goals. These programs typically take place within schools (K-12) in Philadelphia and in the surrounding suburbs.

The Club’s Student Engagement Committee and Committee on Younger Members are looking for people who are interested in volunteering to do a presentation, administer an activity, assist with science fairs, serve as a science fair judge and/or becoming an after school mentor. There’s opportunity to volunteer as little as one, 1-hour session or as much as meeting with students once a week. For more information and to find out how you can volunteer please contact:

Kevin Brown at kbrown@urbanengineers.com

Remember, we all have some level of responsibility to make sure the youth of today are aware of the opportunities available to them in the STEM related fields.
