Engineering for All Through After School Workshop

Every other Thursday the Frenship High School Engineering Department opens its doors after school hours for an engineering workshop. Frenship students in middle school through high school are invited to share a meal and learn more about Frenship Engineering, regardless of whether or not they’ve ever taken an engineering class.

“The purpose of these workshops is to teach kids about the different aspects of engineering and to create an interest in STEM,” said engineering teacher James Holloway.

The program is certainly finding success. This past Thursday, a room full of students were busy signing up for robotics challenges, wiring circuits and keeping an eye on the 3-D printers.

“I’m still trying to figure out what part of engineering I life best,” said FMS 7th grader Wyatt Coulson. “But that’s what I like about this group; I get to try a lot of things and learn a lot before I even get to high school.”
