AB PIP STEM and Acton-Boxborough Regional High School sponsored the MIT student engineering workshops at ABRHS. The goal of the workshops, led by MIT engineering students, was to answer the question, What is Engineering? The MIT engineering students presented an overview of engineering disciplines and explained why engineering is a rewarding career. Presenters facilitated a hands-on activity using engineering concepts and shared their experiences as engineering students.
AB PIP STEM was pleased to offer the MIT student engineering workshops locally through an IBM Community Volunteer Grant. Although the workshops were open to girls and boys, they were sponsored in part by the MIT Women in Engineering (WIE) Initiative.
