Last weekend, Lafferre Hall played host to 120+ students for the third edition of STEM Cubs, the free engineering day camp that illustrates the importance of exploratory and experiential learning in science, technology, engineering and math for students from kindergarten through fifth grade.
Find Your EDGEs combines the expertise areas of both of its founders — engineering for Tojan Rahhal and social science for Miguel Ayllon — in order to provide hands-on training in leadership, diversity and project management skills in a global context.
As part of Engineers Without Borders, the MU chapter traveled to Majé de Chimán, Panama, as part of their continued efforts to provide a reliable water distribution, filtration and storage system for the community there.
The goal of the event is to showcase the field of engineering and science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) careers to girls in grades six through nine and their parents. Women are typically underrepresented in engineering careers, and events such as Daughter Engineering Day seek to help grow the number of women in the field by developing an early interest.
Hosted by MU’s Neural Engineering Laboratory, the 13th annual Robotics Design Challenge welcomed 325 participating K-8th graders to test the robots they had spent months creating.
Mary Carlson (BS ChE ’78) wanted to help future generations of students like her, establishing a scholarship for MU undergraduate chemical engineering students, with a focus on women and underrepresented minorities, and she continued that support this year on Mizzou Giving Day.
Two classes of Benton Elementary School fifth graders were invited to the MU transportation simulator lab recently for a morning of educational fun. Benton’s STEM program partnered with ZouTrans, MU’s “vibrant undergrad and graduate research community,” in the College of Engineering, to bring approximately 50 students to the facility for a lesson on traffic safety, […]
