TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION
The Boston University's Technology & Innovation Scholarship Program (TISP) recruits and trains undergraduate engineers to act as mentors for the surrounding community's younger generation of students.
TISP members are sent to lead hands-on activities in local, underprivileged schools to broaden and build the pipeline from K-12 students into engineering.
Since its inception in 2011, TISP has:
- Reached over 24,000 K-12 students in 27 states and 9 countries
- Mentored 35 high school FIRST robotics teams
Taught topics ranging from fuel cells, wind turbines, fiber optics, drug delivery, and coding through simple, engaging activities with applications tied back to the real-world.
Served as a FIRST robotics mentor at St. Joseph's Prep, evaluating design choices, providing building techniques, and supporting the team at the final competition.
Presented at my previous high school for three consecutive winters, sharing my experience as an undergraduate engineer and offering insight towards a successful mindset during their transition to college.
