Mobile engineering education lab
Our engineering students facilitate grade-appropriate, interactive lessons for K-5th grade. The Mobile Engineering Education Lab program trains University engineering students to foster your students’ curiosity about engineering topics through engaging activities.
What ME2L Offers
Introduction to Engineering Presentation: UNR engineering students talk about what it’s like to be an engineering student and discuss the different types of engineering disciplines.
High-Quality Instruction: Content is developed by University of Nevada, Reno engineering students.
Hands-on Activity: Participants get the opportunity to be engineers and conduct an engineering experiment.
During the 2020-2021 school year, we provided lessons virtually through Zoom. For the 2021-2022 school year, we are going to continue this opportunity for our partnered schools who are in the rural areas of Nevada. In-person lessons are still TBD and will be dependent on the Washoe County School Districts response to COVID-19. We will be monitoring this closely.
Lessons will be available September 7th-December 7th. Please contact Sam Bickert to be added to the contact list.
In addition to our existing lessons, we are 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 opportunity and bring the College of Engineering into your classrooms!
We want to thank all of our teachers and students for participating in our virtual Mobile Engineering Education Lab this school year! We hope you had as much fun as we did. We are looking forward to another great school year 2021-2022.
