Explorers in Engineering After-School Program
The College of Engineering is now offering the most fun and interactive engineering lessons during after-school hours! Our engineering sessions are designed to give students the knowledge, skills, and confidence to thrive in the math and science fields. Hang out with University of Nevada, Reno Engineering students and participate in exciting activities. Following the activities, students will be provided with an opportunity to receive math and science support.
Our program features fun and exciting engineering lessons from UNR students. We offer an immersive hands-on curriculum where students can participate in activities in a small group setting. Our comprehensive approach to engineering and the design process takes kids from asking questions to creating their own models.
Are you an after-school program coordinator or teacher who is looking for a community resource to keep your students engaged in math and science? Explorers in Engineering has what you need! 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.
