Reducing bird-window collisions through science, art, & design

The Michigan Tech campus is positioned within a major migratory route for many bird species and thus many of these birds are at risk of window collisions with campus buildings. This project creates research and creative opportunities for science and art students on the Michigan Tech campus to help birds safely navigate our campus.

Youth STEM Series: Get Women in Science and Engineering 2015

The Center for Pre-College Outreach will co-host a day-long workshop for 7th-8th grade girls. During the event, the girls will engage in three to four science and engineering challenges, meet female role models from Michigan Tech programs, learn physics concepts, and reconnect with their interest in science/engineering. The goal is to inspire more young women to pursue careers in STEM.

Youth STEM Series: Tivitz Tournament & Math Day 2015

The Center for Pre-College Outreach will co-host a day-long event for 4th-7th grade students.
