ENGINEERS AND EDUCATORS TEACHING NEXT GENERATION OF STEM STUDENTS
Since 2014, Manhattan College’s STAR (Scholar Training and Retaining) Program has worked to support and promote engineering education for middle and high school teachers.  The program was made possible by a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). It provides a group of Manhattan engineering and education students – the Engineering Ambassadors – the opportunity to present workshops on opportunities available in STEM-related fields at local middle and high school schools that serve underrepresented groups.The Engineering Ambassadors program puts students in real-life situations where they have to design and present lessons to junior high school and high school students. The aim is to provide first-hand teaching experience while improving their professional skills. Kelly Grogan ’19, a civil engineering major, took advantage of this program to explore careers in both engineering and education.
