Students, share your perspective on diversity in STEM careers!
Due February 1st, 2017 - The American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) envisions widespread, inclusive, and equitable environments in engineering, academia, and industry that embrace individual differences and leverage diversity for a better engineered tomorrow. The Board of Directors established the 2016-2017 year as the year to Commit to P12: When Engineering Begins. In response to this celebration and focus of P12 education, the ASEE Diversity Committee wants students from all walks of life and grade levels (graduate, undergraduate, and P12) to share their community story by submitting an entry into the essay and/or video contests. Each entry should clearly answer the prompt provided below and follow all rules.
The increasing demand for STEM graduates with skills to work and innovate in a global market demands a pipeline of talent from all walks of life. In an 300-500 word essay OR 3-5 minute video, describe a time in your life where you organized or participated in an effort to encourage P12 students to go into a STEM field, specifically engineering. Be sure to discuss why you participated, what you did, and how the event impacted the students.
