Innovation to Reality (I2R)

I2R is a FREE after school engineering program for 6-8th grade students. I2R provides a unique opportunity to explore themed areas of engineering through a combination of faculty guest speakers, lab tours and hands-on engineering activities. Each theme meets once a week for three to five weeks. Past themes have been related to topics of climate change, diabetes, food, energy, and water scarcity.
