Science with the Engineers

Science with the Engineers is a nonprofit group that provides hands-on science and engineering for elementary classrooms. Through their dynamic experiments, students learn scientific and mathematical principles. They provide the ultimate STEM experience. The engineers visit St. Regis Catholic School several times a year.

From the Science with the Engineers website:

Science with the Engineers, Inc. is a non-profit IRS 501 (c) (3) charity providing a hands-on approach that brings science and engineering into the elementary school classroom.  Individual volunteers from industry and scientific professionals encourage students to work as teams and learn about rewarding careers in engineering and science.  This is achieved by offering scientific presentations and experiments that are done solely by the students.  Math related material is integrated into the experiments to reinforce the skills taught in the elementary grades.  Hypothesis forming and the ‘Scientific Method’ are utilized to predict and analyze results of scientific investigation. Our goal is to give students an insight into the scientific and engineering worlds and encourage careers in those areas. The volunteers, active and retired GM engineers and a retired pharmacist, have been presenting these ‘hands-on’ science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) experiments for the past 14 years.”
