Promoting STEM on spring break

Over spring break, several student organizations devoted their time and passion to introducing, and inspiring, high school students to pursue future paths in STEM. The Society of Women Engineers and Alternative Spring Break-Chicago (members of the National Society for Black Engineers and the Society for Hispanic Professional Engineers) visited numerous high schools in the Chicago area, while M-Fly partnered with the Western Michigan Aviation Academy in Grand Rapids to provide both a three-day experience and a pen pal program.

As part of these initiatives, U-M students deepened partnerships with high schools; created engineering focused, hands-on curriculum; and shared their experiences in Michigan Engineering and advice on how to navigate the college selection process. Through these interactions, students from our partner high schools were able to discover the unique ways that STEM and higher education can help them pursue their dreams and change the world.
