The department supports a number of outreach programs aimed at promoting engineering as a profession.
Current Outreach Programs
Engineering is Elementary (EIE)
A bi-weekly program offered in selected elementary schools. Engineering is Elementary, developed by the Boston Museum of Science, is a set of modular units with project and problem based activities that incorporate engineering and technology concepts within elementary science objectives.
In the Middle of Engineering
A bi-weekly club, sponsored in selected middle schools. In these clubs students learn about use a variety of kits to do hands-on projects such as "Our Amazing Bridges", "The Electro Lab", "All About Gears", and "Solar Energy".
Brown-Forman INSPIRE Engineering Program
The Brown-Forman INSPIRE (Increasing Student Preparedness and Interest in the Requisites for Engineering) program targets female and minority students, who traditionally are underrepresented in engineering fields.
Aspiring engineers learn about the broad range of opportunities the profession can offer when they participate in the University of Louisville’s four-week Brown-Forman INSPIRE summer program for high school students.
