The E-CADEMY Pro Program is a 3-year out-of-school time engineering program that is designed to prepare students in grades 9-11 for enrollment in post-secondary STEM programs. The goal of the program is to provide students in high school with the necessary engagement opportunities to develop the technical skills and knowledge for success in collegiate engineering programs. The Pro version of E-CADEMY includes two principal sections: a knowledge and skill development component, which takes place during the academic school year and an experiential component, which takes place during the summer months.
The Pro Program is more than just another high school engineering program. It allows students to apply science, technology, engineering and math skills to solve complex, open-ended problems in a real-world context. Students focus on the process of defining and solving a problem, not just on finding the “right” answer. They learn how to apply STEM knowledge, skills and habits of mind to make the world a better place through innovation.
The summer months allow students the opportunity to put their knowledge to use. During this portion of the program, students are broken up into teams to work collaboratively to develop solutions to specific engineering challenges. The students will learn to apply the knowledge gained from the academic year to help in designing their solutions to the provided problem sets. The projects are instructor guided, but each team will be paired with a mentor from one our corporate partners to help them think through their design solutions.
