Building engineers — One student at a time
The Engineer Factory
The mission of the Engineer Factory is to improve the K-12 STEM education pipeline and to increase the number of students from underrepresented populations (girls and students of color) who pursue higher education and careers in Engineering and STEM. This is accomplished through: hands-on, project-based learning opportunities (STEM workshops); participation in engineering competitions; academic support; professional development for educators; exposure and linkages to the engineering industry; mentoring; strategic alliances and partnerships with engineering-related programs; and by awarding scholarships to deserving high school seniors
--Best math camp ever!--Jason P. Student
The Engineer Factory conducted it first Virtual Summer STEAM Camp for 5th-8th grade students this summer and it was a complete success! The national Virtual STEAM Camp ran from July 2-30 and served 30 students, some logging in from as far as Chicago, Detroit and Dallas! The purpose of the program was to ensure that students prevented traditional summer math learning loss, exacerbated by the COVID-19 school shut downs in March 2020. The students had access to EdReady Math, an award winning online math software that allows students build math skills while working at their own pace. More than 80 percent of our students had a measured increase in math proficiency! The students also had the chance to build hands-on STEAM projects, while learning the science behind each project. Finally, students also learned Growth Mindset lessons and how to apply this mindset to current challenges. One parent commented that "this program is setting an example for all education--both in schools and and out"!
