                                EESSO

• EESSO – Educational Engineer and Scientist Student Outreach
• Inspire students to become engineers & scientists immediately prior to
  their selection of High School curriculum
   - Motivate next generation in time to guide college preparation
   - Focus on 8th grade students after standardized test preparation
     (early April) and before selection of 9th grade course work (May)
• Emphasize applied mathematics
   - Students predict and verify a physics problem in teams
   - Demonstrate that math helps us understand our world
   - Accent experimentation and discovery
• Show how engineers “create the future world we will live in”
• Involve teachers and ultimately parents
• Measure progress by tracking the interests of students for 10yrs
  following the course
