ICES’s educational outreach programs share the university’s resources with the local community, integrating Carnegie Mellon students, faculty and staff with students from the City of Pittsburgh and its surrounding areas. These programs, including Moving 4th Into Engineering and ICES’s contribution to National Engineers Week, provide a breadth of opportunities for local children to gain hands-on experience and knowledge about education and careers in math, science, and engineering. Moving 4th Into Engineering is offered to City of Pittsburgh fourth-grade students, while ICES’s National Engineers Week activity is one of many offered to elementary and secondary students at the Carnegie Science Center.
