Volunteer Opportunity: Chapin Magnet Mentors

Hello Fellow Volunteers!

Just wanted to remind you all about another volunteer opportunity! Captain John L. Chapin High School is in need of mentors for their senior pre-engineering magnet students. These kiddos are in the final stretch of their senior projects and just need someone to offer a few words of advice. Attached is the list of projects. If you are interested please respond to this email with the name of the student(s) you would like to mentor. Thank you in advance for all of your time and effort!

Workshop Description

Science Extravaganza is one of the biggest and greatest outreach programs hosted by engineering organizations. The program targets high school students, which will get a one day unique experience at UTEP. We are in the stages of planning this event again for this coming spring semester and it will be held March 12th (Saturday). The ACM has been invited to participate and host a workshop for this event.  This year our target will be geared toward high school freshmen.The workshop is a hands on activity related to scientific visualization, that will introduce them to one of the research areas in the engineering field.

Innova Gameworks and Animations former officers, now ACM officers had a blast helping with this activity last year!

Science Extravaganza

Since the 1980s, the College of Engineering has invited pre-college students, teachers and parents to celebrate National Engineers Week as part of the Engineering and Science Expo. Our efforts to meet the growing demand of engineering awareness have led us to collaborate with other events on campus.  We look forward to sharing these exciting tours with high school juniors interested in answers to their engineering questions. Tours will engage students and teachers with engineering faculty and  students who will share their research experiences and their laboratories.

The UTEP student chapter of MAES/SHPE also supports the national E-Week celebration with their fun-filled Science Extravaganza.  This event is part of the organizations outreach to middle school students.  Students will spend the whole day learning about science and engineering through projects ranging from water bottle rockets to the infamous Chemistry Circus.  Students will also be exposed to the facilities of the UTEP campus, and more importantly, college students like themselves  who attended the same exact school and live in their same neighborhoods.
