TryEngineering allows NNS employees to mentor students at two Newport News elementary schools by reading science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) articles and writing letters to each other about them. Register online by Oct. 7.
Girls with Engineering Minds in Shipbuilding (GEMS) is an after-school program where mentors facilitate biweekly meetings that focus on college and career pathways while leading hands-on STEM activities. (90 minute in-person sessions)
Young Men in Engineering (YME) is an after school program that pairs each young man with a mentor for the entire school year. Mentors will facilitate biweekly meetings that focus on college and career pathways while leading hands-on STEM activities. (90 minute in-person sessions)
Taking Action to Overcome Obstacles (TATOO) takes place during the school day. Volunteers meet with their assigned student(s) for an hour to provide tutoring in math.
