Inside Engineering


Students will visit one of Columbia University's Engineering departments. The visit will include a general introduction to engineering, a tour of two of our labs, and a couple short demos in the labs. The teacher in charge of the class will also receive pre- and post-visit lesson plans to help make the visit a comprehensive opportunity. These lessons, while optional, are designed to optimize the learning experience.
