This marks the second year that M.E.T.S. students have participated in the Fairleigh Dickinson University's Technical Enrichment Outreach Program. Ibrahim Hussein, Angel Soto, Shadira Herk, Samantha Guzman, Davontae Taito, Jaheli Burgos, and Joscelyn Williams all just successfully completed the TEOP program. Ms. Hassan, the M.E.T.S. Jersey City engineering teacher, is a Fairleigh Dickinson University's TEOP alumi and has done an amazing job helping our students excel in this wonderful program.
This program brought high school students together from across the state for science and engineering hands-on projects and lectures. It brought upper-level high school students to the School of Computer Science and Engineering at the Metropolitan Campus for 10 Saturdays for technical instruction and hands-on laboratory work under the direction of University faculty, staff and graduate students.
Students got introductory engineering lectures plus guided hands-on experience in working with various technology oriented kits, projects, and computer activities. Basic engineering and scientific concepts and principles and mathematics (keyed to the hands-on projects) would be introduced in the lectures. This innovative enrichment program provides exposure to, and experience with, pre-engineering and engineering technology activities.
The students who successfully completed the program and are accepted to Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Engineering, Computer Science, Engineering Technologies and Information Technology programs at The Gildart Haase School of Computer Sciences and Engineering will receive TEOP scholarship up to $10,000 annually for 4 years.
Great job STEM students!
