Engineers working in local companies, retired engineers, or teachers can volunteer to work with the Engineering K-12 Outreach Center. Volunteers can lead activities, share their work experience, and mentor students. Activities are already created and ready to go or you can create your own. Students enjoy hearing about the experiences and what engineers do from people actually working in those careers.
If you would like to volunteer, please send your name, contact information, and email address to EngOutreach@psu.edu.
“Spending a morning helping with the K-12 Outreach was one of the more rewarding and fun things I have done in a long time. It was amazing to see how those 5th graders got into the project and how creative they were.” —Ron Del Porto, Lecturer in Computer Science and Software Engineering
