The “SWEeter Futures Outreach Program” is a unique program to the Sonora Region, which tracks the impact we have on the future of engineering by sharing engineering, math, and science with K-12 students during FY14. Our goal is impact to 25,000 students!!!
We know Region B does a great job at outreach. Now we need the information you have collected so far and we would like to encourage everyone to make an impact and help us meet our goal of providing outreach to 25,000 students (grades K-12) in the fields of engineering, math and science!
All part of the “SWEeter Futures Outreach Program” here in our Region, we’re continuing to track the impact our members have. The top 3 sections that provide outreach (on a weighted, ratio of members-to-students) will be rewarded with a generous stipend from the Region! WIN-WIN!!
Please continue to encourage your membership to hold outreach events for FY14 and jot down a few stats (number of SWE members, number of K-12, best practices, etc.) before you visit the tracker. If you’re struggling with what types of outreach events to hold, consider one of the following:
- Hands-on Demonstration/Workshop
- Presentation/Lecture (single instructor, not hands-on)
- Presentation/Lecture (multiple instructors, not hands-on)
- Panel Discussion
- Demonstration Booth/Table (not hands-on)
- Career Demonstration (i.e., “Career Day”)
- Mentoring (one-on-one)
- Mentoring (group)
- Science Fair Judging (with Student interaction/interview)
Track your outreach at the Region B SWEeter Futures website
Don’t hesitate to email with questions and please continue to make an impact to the future of engineering, math, and science!
