In collaboration with the Leonard Gelfand STEM Center at Case Western Reserve, the Case School of Engineering hosts and participates in a variety of STEM activities for preK-8 grade children and their families. In engineering-related engagements, the school serves more than 2,000 preK-12 grade students annually with hands-on STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) learning opportunities.
Hallmark annual programs include:
Engineering Challenges Carnival
Held during the school’s Engineers Week each spring, the carnival welcomes over a thousand pre-K through 8th grade students and their families and introduces them to design thinking and engineering and science principles with fun, hands-on activities. Learn more about Engineers Week, including the Engineering Challenges Carnival.
Girls Take Flight
Held in conjunction with NASA and the Girl Scouts of Northeast Ohio each spring, Girls Take Flight engages girls in grades 2 through 5 with aerospace science and engineering activities, introducing the world of airplanes, astronauts, rockets, comets, balloons, planets and spacecraft to future aerospace engineers.
In conjunction with Case Western Reserve’s School of Medicine, Anatomy Camp welcomes hundreds of invited middle- and high-school students from the Cleveland metropolitan area to learn more about anatomy, health and wellness and biomedical careers. Learn more.
Super Saturday Math Corps Program
In collaboration with the Leonard Gelfand STEM Center, CWRU hosts an 8 week winter math program that targets middle and high school students. The students learn complex math concepts in a fun and nurturing environment where CWRU students serve as mentor teachers and high school students serve as peer mentors to the middle school students. The CWRU Math Corps program complements the summer Math Corps program held at Cleveland State University.
