Middle-High School Students Discovers Engineering


The Christian Brothers University School of Engineering held a series of Middle School and High School workshops to promote the importance of engineering in the world and encourage college-bound students to pursue a career in engineering. IEEE@CBU members supported the program by assisting the CBU professors in teaching the students in workshops such as building a simple electric motor. Other events included creating 3-D movies (using ALICE) and designing video games (using SCRATCH).
