Jefferson faculty, alumni and students participated in the campus-wide outreach and engagement event.

On May 30, more than 1,000 middle and high school students and teachers visited the East Falls Campus of Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University) for the 2018 Philadelphia STEM Innovators-in-Training Experience.

Jefferson faculty, alumni and students participated in the campus-wide outreach and engagement event, sponsored by the U.S. Army and run by Ten80 Education—a developer of K-12 STEM curriculum and training.

Students from 60 area schools attended workshops in computer science, engineering, leadership and design, as well as participated in a host of other activities, such as drone flying and virtual reality.

“This was a great way to showcase our campus, meet prospective students and talk to educators,” said Jonathan Spindel, PhD, director of the engineering programs at Jefferson.
