Engineering Mentorship Program


The Lewis Center's Local Outreach Department presents our Engineering Mentorship Program! High school students with a passion for STEM will be hosting monthly engineering workshops for elementary students. Workshops will vary by grade level band and engineering focus throughout the year.  Engineering is all about problem solving. They believe that by sharing their passion for STEM with the younger students, they can inspire future engineers! This program was initiated by an AAE Girl Scout as her Silver Award project for our AAE students.
