I left the event feeling very happy about our participation in the STEM night at Pickett Elementary School. The students that participated with me had a very good time working with the parents and the students with the Jelly Bean Structure building activity.

About 29 students and three chaperones from the Danish Youth Association of Science visited UNF College of Computing, Engineering and Construction to learn about the different types of research that our faculty is working on. They received research presentations from 3 faculty members in the areas of (Electrical) Wireless Optical 5G; (Civil/Coastal) Surf-breaking Engineering and (Mechanical) Metalization of Plastic 3D Printed Parts to Create Structural Campsites.
The College of Computing, Engineering and Construction participated in a visit with approximately 30 students who are Chief Science Officers in Northeast Florida. These students were 6th - 8th graders and they have an interest in computing and engineering programs. They were able to receive a short overview of the programs by the School of Computing, Director, School of Engineering, Director and the Outreach and Recruitment Coordinator.
The UNF Society of Women in Engineers Student Club and the Center for the Advancement of Women in Engineering (CAWE) hosted an outreach event entitled SWENext. SWENext is a way for students 13 years of age or older to become a part of the SWE community. It helps to encourage and empower females under the age of 18 to prepare for careers in engineering and technology. Provides programming to help females under the age of 18 to develop leadership skills and self-confidence in a career in engineering and technology. Provides programming to empower females under the age of 18 to become advocates for peers and younger girls. Demonstrates the value of diversity and inclusion. The students and parents were able to learn about the program and they also participated in a STEM activity.
The College of Computing, Engineering and Construction participated in the Fall 2019 UNF Explore Day held at the Student Union. Advisors, Dept Directors, Student Clubs volunteered their time to speak with prospective students and their parents on CCEC programs. It was an amazing event and a great turn out which made the event a success.
I participated in the Department of Diversity Initiatives Fall 2019 Multicultural Student Roundup for the College of Computing, Engineering and Construction. This was an opportunity for students from diverse backgrounds to learn about multicultural programs and clubs on campus and how they can participate in them.
I volunteered to participate in the UNF Department of Diversity Initiatives Multicultural Student Roundup that allows students to learn about multicultural programs and student clubs that are available to them on campus. The turnout was very good and I think the students really enjoyed it.
I really enjoyed working with the organizers of this program who put this coding program together for students during their summer break. The students were able to come out to UNF every Friday during June and July for a campus tour, engineering and computing presentations, transportation engineering demonstrations and robot demonstration, meet faculty and graduate research students and have lunch in the Osprey Cafe . They also learned about career opportunities for both programs.
I am always happy to share information with parents and students about careers in engineering and technology.
I learned a lot about the state of the black male students in Duval County and what some concerned community leaders and partners are doing to hone in on changing this data and making it available to the public.
