Hero and Project Description: 

The team’s innovative teaching idea, “Computer Engineering Program,” is focused on student independence, personal growth, and STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) engagement. The team hopes the students involved in the program will be better prepared for college-level electronics and computer engineering courses as the curriculum will focus on mathematics and physics that relate to electronics. Students will also experience real-world applications through hands-on lab exercises. By the end of this course, students will earn a strong portfolio for college, allowing them to apply to more rigorous university programs, qualify for electronics positions at graduation and be better suited for advanced internships revolving around electronics and programming. The team believes they will have a competitively stronger academic foundation to better their chances in STEM majors in the future.
