K-12 programs

K-12 programs

We're excited about engineering, and we want to share that enthusiasm with Nevada's K-12 school children. 

Educating Nevada's future engineers

The College of Engineering knows that Nevada's future lies with our youngest students, and we have developed a number of programs to introduce them to engineering.

In partnership with local educators, we aim to help Nevada students stay focused on math and science, learn about the wide range of career possibilities engineering offers, and see how engineers can change the world.

From hands-on activities that make engineering accessible to elementary students to college preparation help for high schoolers, the College of Engineering is committed to developing a strong STEM pipeline for Nevada.

Our programs

Mobile engineering lab

Our mobile engineering lab brings engineering to your classroom. Our students teach hour-long lessons on a range of topics, from robotics to renewable energy. 

Engineering summer camps

Our week-long summer camps bring students onto campus and into our labs for hands-on lessons that can jump start an engineering education. 

K-12 campus lab

Our on-campus K-12 lab offers a variety of lessons available to individual or small groups of students. 

MESA

Our MESA programs works to promote STEM education with middle and high school students from low-income or underrepresented backgrounds.
