What We Do

The Statler College Outreach and Recruitment office is a resource for local and regional K-12 students to engage, learn and explore the variety of fields available in engineering and computer science. Our dedicated staff and student ambassadors advocate connecting tomorrow’s minds to the world of science, technology, engineering and math through school visits, earn badges for boy and girl scouts, STEM days, Engineering Challenge camps, Junior Academies or participating in the annual Pumpkin Drop and so much more. The next generation of students are the ones who will change the world and we want to get them excited about it.
