The Engineering Institute follows a cohort model. Sophomores with an interest in the program should attend the E3 information meeting with a parent in January. To further inquire about the program, commitment and expectations, contact program directors Mr. Dan Vandermyde or Mr. Matt Thibodeau.
The E3 Institute is open to all current students in 9th grade, specifically who have an interest in the field of engineering. The Institute is looking for students who have a diversity of skills, interests, backgrounds and abilities. Students who like math or science, hands-on learning, creative problem solving and the ability to communicate to a variety of groups are highly encouraged to apply. The Institute strongly encourages females to apply for the program. With diverse backgrounds, abilities and skills, the E3 Institute will be a rich and vibrant experience for all who are involved.
Here is just a short list of skills that you will develop as a part of the E3 Institute:
The E3 Institute is a 3-year program where a group of students will work throughout the various components. Each year, the group of students will take a one-semester engineering course, as well as other Institute requirements (4 years of math and science, participation in seminars / enrichment activities and field trips, collaboration with a professional mentor, and an engineering-related job shadowing experience). The Institute will begin with a seminar during the summer before sophomore year.
