Our N-Vision Student Workshop team, made up of a group of Westinghouse engineers, will visit schools for a one-day workshop to educate high school students in advance science the following subjects: Careers in Engineering, Forms of Energy, and Nuclear Energy Basics. Two hands-on activities take place to engage students to think like an engineer. If time allows, we also play Careers in Engineering Jeopardy and Price is Right. The workshops are not only educational, but fun!
This curriculum can change according to a teacher's needs. We have conducted workshops at the following high schools in Pennsylvania, alone: Ambridge, Northgate, Seneca Valley, Mars, McKeesport, Plum, Leechburg, Uniontown, Baldwin, South Fayette, North Allegheny…and many more!
Below are just a few comments about our Student Workshops…
“Thanks for all your work in putting together the Seneca Valley N-Vision Student Workshop. My students enjoyed the experience and learned a lot from the engineers. I believe it's a very valuable experience for them to interact directly with each other. It takes a lot of the fear of the unknown out of the field. Since this was your first experience with the larger group, I hope that the experience was good for your engineers also.”- Hal Repasky, Seneca Valley High School, Pa.
“THANK YOU for the excellent workshop you presented for our students. Many of them have told me that they now know so much more about the field of engineering and which area they would like to concentrate on. I have also overheard them telling other students about the two "awesome" activities and the great prizes they received. They are still discussing how they would do things differently during the competitions, so their team could win. It was such a worthwhile and informative experience for our students. We truly appreciate all of your efforts. I will be in touch to set up another workshop for next year. I have already had some students ask if they could be included next time.” - Alice Saxon, McKeesport High School Administration, Pa.
