ME2L is going virtual!
Our Mobile Engineering Education Lab lessons have gone virtual!
We will be providing our Mobile Engineering Education Lab (ME2L) virtually. In addition to our existing lessons, we are a proud to be part of a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant that allows us to expand our solar-water lessons. We are excited to provide this new opportunity and bring the College of Engineering into your classrooms!
Our engineering students facilitate grade-appropriate, interactive lessons. The ME2L program trains University engineering students to foster your students’ curiosity about engineering topics through engaging activities. This will be done via Zoom or you will be given access to recorded lesson videos on FlipGrid.
For participating in the solar-water lesson, teachers will have an opportunity to sign-up for an additional ME2L lesson of their choice to show our appreciation for your support!
In an effort to connect students, we offer the following variety of virtual options to engage students in the engineering lessons;
- Students at home or in class provide their own supplies and participate in the activity with the University of Nevada, Reno students.
- Students actively observe at home or in class the University of Nevada, Reno students conducting the experiment without supplies.
- If the teacher and students are in person together, the teacher demonstrates the activity in class for the students (using their own supplies) along with direction from the University of Nevada, Reno students.
Due to limited availability, teachers will be allowed two time slots per semester. Lessons will be available February 2-May 4. To schedule a ME2L lesson, please contact Samantha Bickert and provide the following information;
- Number of Students
