Berkeley Engineers and Mentors (BEAM). Work with undergraduate students in engineering on developing teaching plans for elementary, middle and high school levels. Technical concepts on the topic of biomaterials and medical devices are developed and presented by undergraduate mentors in an interactive format for students at k-12 sites in the Berkeley and Oakland school districts (2010- present).
Engineering for Kids Day (E4K). Work with the Engineering for Kids (E4K) student group at UC Berkeley to bring in about 300 elementary schoolchildren annually. The all day workshop provides lectures, engineering activities, and lab tours (2010- present).
Girls in Engineering (GIE). Summer program at UC Berkeley targeted at providing engineering experiences to underprivileged middle school girls (2014-present).
Lawrence Hall of Science Interactive Children’s Exhibits entitled, The Way Things Break, The Human Body Shop, The Body Builders, Fantastic Plastic, The Bionic Bear, Body by Design, and Engineering Ingenuity. Developed interactive teaching demonstrations with undergraduate and graduate classes in the areas of design, engineering materials, polymers, and medical devices. Student teams develop projects aimed at teaching science and engineering concepts to k-12 (1997- present).
Summer Undergraduate Program in Engineering Research at Berkeley. Provided summer research opportunities to under-represented or non-traditional students from around the nation. Students were teamed up with a mentoring graduate student in the research laboratory for 8 weeks in the summer (1993-2010).
Summer Undergraduate Research Program in Bioengineering. Developed an industry-funded summer research program aimed at providing bioengineering research experiences to Berkeley undergraduates. Mentor undergraduate researchers in biomaterials (2000-2010).
National Student Leadership Conference (NSLC) at UC Berkeley. Facilitated three 10-day sessions for approximately 350 high school honors students from around the country. Conference involves implementation of hands-on design projects, faculty lectures providing an overview of engineering, and research laboratory tours (2006-2010).
Berkeley Early Academic Outreach Program. Facilitated interactive laboratory activities in biomaterials and medical devices for a Reverse Engineering Class targeted to high school students (2005-2008).
