March 8th: VCUEI representatives attending the 4th IEEE Integrated STEM Education Conference in Princeton

2 VCUEI fellows and 3 Vassar Student Volunteers have been funded by the local SHPE chapter (at IBM) to attend a conference at Princeton University to talk about the ways we integrate technology and engineering skills into our programming. We will be holding a workshop on “SNAP Circuit Kits” we use to teach kids about electrical engineering, and our i-pad program with elementary age ESL students. This conference is an opportunity to share our programming with other groups interested in getting children from underrepresented groups into STEM fields.
