Hani Mehrpouyan hosted a youth summer training program that introduced middle- and high-school aged students to electronics, mechanics, robotics and electromagnetics.

Having completed its inaugural run last summer, the program provided a hands-on approach to learning engineering basics and fine tuning interests for pre-undergraduate students. Through fun and interesting activities and projects launched from start to completion, the program was designed to attract young women – a generally underrepresented group in STEM fields. Through their work, the students gained confidence in their ability to succeed at STEM.

Mehrpouyan plans to expand the program next summer.
