Iridescent is Engineer-powered!
Engineer as Teachers program support engineers as they learn how to communicate their specialized knowledge to inspire underprivileged children with fun design challenges.
Engineering students from partner universities are rigorously trained in a credit course. Over the course of 12 weeks, students develop quality lesson plans while instructors and peers provide meaningful feedback to ensure they are well-prepared. In the second half of the course, students teach a 5-week Family Science course based on their lesson plans in a local, under-served Elementary school.
Benefits for Engineers:
- students hone their communication and leadership abilities;
- develop deeper understandings of their fields (no hiding behind jargon or technical details!)
- reconnect with their love for science and engineering as they inspire children to pursue these career paths.
