NPI Supporting Texas Math Teachers Headed to TAMU for Summer Research, E3: Enrichment Experiences in Engineering

May 17, 2013

    The Dwight Look College of Engineering is hosting 14 Texas secondary school science and math teachers for a four-week summer residential engineering research experience on the Texas A&M University College Station campus during the month of June. This integrated math/science program is designed to support student success on the TAKS/STAAR.

    It is with excitement that the Nuclear Power Institute (NPI) has selected two math teachers for participation in the E3 program. These educators also lead their school's WIT (Workforce Industry Training) programs - from El Campo High School Adrian Canales and from Foster High School Apolinar Guevarra.

    Canales and Guevarra were selected to participate in the E3 program to learn how to introduce engineering concepts to their students, increase student awareness of engineering, and encourage students to consider an engineering career. Following their time at TAMU, the pair will experience the South Texas Project Nuclear Operating Company near Bay City, Texas, where they will participate in job shadowing, presentations and trainings. The program's mission is to excite, empower, and educate teachers about engineering and other STEM opportunities so they can pass on the knowledge and skills learned to their students.
