ASCE SSJB YMF visits classrooms/students all over the Kern County, advocating the importance of math, science and engineering in the future of our communities. We provide classrooms with innovative programs and resources, and instruct engineers, educators, and parents on ways to reach out to kids, mentor, educate and much more!
At the core of ASCE’s K-12 Outreach effort are research-based initiatives designed to engage pre-college audiences in educational experiences that support engineering. For younger students (pre-K – 6), ASCE’s outreach materials acquaint children with the role of civil engineers in the community and explore science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) through inquiry learning and engineering design principles. For middle school aged students, ASCE materials expand on STEM exploration and introduce civil engineering as a career option for all students to consider. At the high school level, we provide specific information about the engineering career pathway and highlight the variety of career options within the civil engineering profession through the stories and profiles of young professional engineers.
ASCE partners with leading educational groups, engineering associations, the highly-rated PBS network, and others to provide technical expertise and bring ground-breaking resources to advance formal and informal engineering education.
Our ASCE SSJB YMF K-12 Outreach Program currently offers the following outreach events:
