Informal engineering experiences
College of Engineering students lead outreach activities in public spaces like libraries, Girl Scout meetings, and Boy Scout meetings. One of the current initiatives is Brain STEM, a pioneering effort led by the UNT Society of Women Engineers. Through Brain STEM, UNT SWE designs engineering-based activities to share with K-12 children in public libraries. The lessons integrate methods from all learning styles, allowing all students to understand the concepts.
After school programs
The College of Engineering partners with Dallas SWE and Latina SciGirls to support their NSF grant that assesses the effectiveness of Spanish-language programming in an organized after school program. These programs are presented in both Spanish and English.
We actively participate in STEM-related community events in DFW each year that allow us to promote engineering and STEM with K-12 students and their families. In recent years we have participated in Earth Day Texas, Dallas ISD STEM Expo, Coppell Science Fair, as well as STEM nights at various schools in DFW.
STEM @ the Park
The college hosts day-long engineering design experiences for middle and high school students. Our student organizations organize projects for our STEM @ the Park events, allowing K-12 students to actively engage with our current students. UNT SWE has recently co-hosted Design Your World where K-12 girls were able to learn about engineering through activities that highlighted different engineering disciplines.
UNT STEM at the Park for adults, middle and high school students
Sat, Feb 22, 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM

Group Tours @ the Park
We host group tours of UNT Discovery Park where the College of Engineering is located. Your group can see our labs, learn about our research, and discover what it is like to be a student in our programs. We host tours for K-12 aged students, community college students, community groups, and more.
