In learning you will teach, and in teaching you will learn

The K- 12 Outreach Program seeks to connect AIChE Student Chapters with each other and with K-12 students. Student Chapters are encouraged to share their experience in K-12 outreach through teaching modules that contain information about science demonstrations and experiments that they've found to be most successful.

In 2019, MIT-WPU took action to address and fill the gap of a talented and educated workforce with the establishment of the K-12 Outreach program. The vision of K-12 Outreach program is to bridge the gap by engaging students in hands-on and interactive engineering-related experiences; expose young people to the variety of potential opportunities and careers in engineering, and encourage young people to explore their personal interests in the engineering field. In addition, particular attention is to expose and encourage a diverse population of future engineers. We encourage diversification in gender, ethnicity, socioeconomic backgrounds, and urban/rural diversity.
