MSE Students in Action at the 2nd Annual GT Engineering Olympics
Saturday, April 14, 2018. MSE graduate and undergraduate students, in collaboration with the Center for Engineering Education and Diversity (CEED), held the 2nd Annual GT Engineering Olympics. The competition was geared towards high school students interested in engineering and followed the competition format of Science Olympiad. Students from different engineering fields designed competitive activities to introduce engineering to students as they prepare for college.
This effort originated from MSE graduate student Collen Leng who sought collaboration with the Georgia Tech’s Center for Education Integrating Science, Mathematics and Computing (CEISMC), and CEED to bring the vision to fruition last year. This year, in an effort to build on the previous partnerships and add new event aspects for the expansion of student exposure to campus, the organizational duties were shared with MSE graduate student Emily McGuinness. Other MSE students involved included graduate student Elizabeth Quigley and undergraduates from The MILL: Tom Miller, Lily Turaski, Sam Williams, Bonnie Vannatter, and Casey Miles. Working with CEED’s Mr. Cedric Trice, this year’s events included a greater understanding of Georgia Tech’s K-12 outreach initiatives and the field of Material Science and Engineering, due to the overwhelming support of MSE students in lead organizational roles, collegiate panel representation, and The MILL lab tours.
