K-12 Engineering Academies

About the K-12 Engineering Academies

The Engineering Academies offer students of all ages a wide variety of interesting and challenging programs. Our courses challenge our youth to become critical-thinking problem solvers, appreciate STEM, and explore the engineering design process. Since 2006, the Outreach team develops and offers unique opportunities for students to have fun while solving real-world engineering problems.
