This last week the students in the Maestro Lab were involved in multiple STEM outreach programs, emphasizing the laboratory’s commitment to education.
This Spring semester the Maestro laboratory is partnering with Trinity Valley School to help inspire and educate high school students with projects related to STEM. As part of the ongoing outreach with Trinity Valley School, Maestro students gave a virtual tour this Wednesday of our facilities and talked about ongoing research.
On Friday we had high and middle school teachers visit our labs as part of the College of Engineering outreach program. It was a fruitful exchange of information, where the students talked about their research and about how shape memory alloys, VR, and other simple experiments could be used in a high school environment. Finally on Saturday, Maestro grad students participated in the SWE High School Conference, where students visited the Aerospace Department laboratories to know more about the program (see photo).
