The VCU School of Engineering makes a point to reach outside its walls to expose the broader community to the challenges, thrills and joys of engineering.

Through its summer enrichment programs, which involve students from local elementary and middle schools, the school targets the next generation of engineers through games and activities built around principles of engineering.

The school’s involvement with FIRST Robotics and High School Programming brings a wide range of engineering-minded high school students to campus for annual competitions, introducing them to VCU engineering students and faculty members in the process.

Engineering students have also become engaged outside the local community through Engineers Without Borders-USA.
