The Outreach Committee assists students and the Blacksburg community by reaching out to K-12 students in a variety of settings, participating in Virginia Science Festival at Virginia Tech and October Sky Festival, hosting students on campus to participate in our hands-on activities and tour a variety of the engineering labs on campus, and mentoring Tuxedo Pandas, a local robotics team.
What Students are saying:
“I enjoy being a part of this committee because it allows me to reach out to the younger generation and foster a love of engineering and technology, something of which I never had anyone who did anything similar for me when I was younger.”
“I have learned a lot about project management and planning. When coordinating with teachers and getting freshmen to sign up, I am able to practice my written communication and leadership skills.”
