EWB-NY connects our love of engineering with our belief in the value of education and knowledge sharing through the Education Committee. The mission of the Education Committee is to provide opportunities for our members to share engineering expertise and skills with local students through various ways:
- Delivering formalized lessons and educational content that meets NY state curriculum standards (developed in a partnership with EWB-USA, ASCE and ASME)
- Delivering formal or informal lectures and discussions in classrooms
- Serving as mentors or facilitators in science and math events in NYC (events run by local partner organizations)
- Speaking at career fairs
The Education Committee also actively encourages continuing education for our own professional and college chapter members. In 2013, the NY Professional Chapter is planning a series of workshops focusing on Water/Sanitation/Hygiene (WASH) technologies.
There are always new ways to engage the local student community and get them excited about engineering as a career – we’re interested in hearing your ideas! Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for information about how to get involved, or just come to our next General Body Meeting to hear more!
