Aristotle once said, "Educating the mind without educating the heart is like no education at all." Without a passion and excitement about learning, children are less likely to continue their education. When education is presented in a way that is fun and exciting, it doesn't feel as much like work.
The Engineering For Kids Foundation is dedicated to providing fun and exciting S.T.E.M. Education to children who may not have access to these extra learning possibilities. We strive to change the education culture of communities around the United States, by putting talented and inspired High school engineering students and faculty in classrooms with Elementary students who do not have the opportunity to learn about the fascinating field of Engineering in their schools. These students will receive encouragement and support from mentors in their community and learn about technology in a new way.
In 2015 we will held our First Engineering For Kids Foundation Gala in hopes to raise money to release our Mentorship Program worldwide. The three-hour event raised over $10,000, featured guest speaker, former professional football player and NASA astronaut, Leland Melvin, as well as a silent auction, and awards presentation.
In 2016 the Engineering For Kids Foundation hosted the Stafford Science and Engineering Festival at Stafford Airport in Virginia.
