These programs seek to develop the pipeline of students who are excited about careers in engineering and prepared to apply to the U-M College of Engineering.
CEDO/DAPCEP Spring Partnership: Offered by the Center for Engineering Diversity and Outreach (CEDO), with the Detroit Area Pre-College Engineering Program (DAPCEP), offers a series of classes each spring to 7th-9th grade students. Each class is sponsored by a different UM Engineering department, focusing on material related to that engineering discipline. The classes are designed to sharpen students' problem-solving skills and display the relevance of engineering in everyday life through hands-on activities and field trips. The Spring Programs ultimately seek to support the students' interest in science, technology, engineering, and math, and to encourage them to pursue careers in those fields.
Summer Engineering Academy (SEP, MITE, SCEEP): A carefully structured series of enrichment programs that introduce middle- and high-school students to the disciplines, challenges, and career opportunities of engineering.
Engineering is Elementary® (EiE) workshop for Elementary School Teachers occurs on the campus of the University of Michigan and introduces elementary school teachers how to incorporate engineering concepts and practices into the classroom. EiE is a research-based, standards-driven, and classroom-tested curriculum that integrates engineering and technology concepts and skills with elementary science topics. EiE lessons not only promote K-12 science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) learning, but also promote literacy and social studies skills. Our next workshop will be on Friday, March 8, from 8:30 to 2:30 on University of Michigan’s north campus. There is no cost to attend!
Michigan Engineering Road Show (MERS) might soon be in an area close to you! MERS features University of Michigan graduate and undergraduate engineering students engaging 7th and 8th graders in learning STEM skills while solving a real-life problem using the engineering design process. The day long workshop is free. MERS will be in Grand Rapids on Saturday, February 23rd. MERS will travel to several additional sites in Michigan this spring. Check our website for updates!
