Engineers in the Classroom
Expanding the collaboration between Lockheed Martin and the UTEP College of Engineering, this event brings the worlds of engineering education & careers to local area high school students. Engineers in the Classroom allow high school students the opportunity to ask questions of Lockheed Martin engineers to ignite their interest in pursuing a career in engineering fields. At the same time, engineering and science undergraduates and graduates share their experiences of research and the various programs offered at UTEP.
Women in Engineering, Win-gineers
Outreach activities that are focused on exposing and igniting engineering interest in girls are facilitated by WINgineers. The unique overlay of female students in the College of Engineering and student organizations, namely SWE and ACM-W allows for encouragement, enlightenment, and empowerment of future female engineers.
Science and Engineering Extravaganza
Science and Engineering Extravaganza brings together hundreds of high school students from the El Paso area for an exciting day of exhibits, hands-on activities and motivational presentations to spark the students' interest in pursuing careers in technical fields.
Hour of Code
Computers are everywhere, but fewer schools teach computer science than 10 years ago. The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries. The UTEP Computer Science (CS) Department encourages girls and minorities to participate in this learning event every year. The Hour of Code, organized by the nonprofit Code.org and over 100 others, is a statement that today's generation of students are ready to learn critical skills for 21st century success.
