The Massie Chairs Outreach Program - HPMI 

Outreach programs are an integral part of the Dr. Massie Chairs of Excellence Program at the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering. The College of Engineering has a very active and successful pre-college program that recruits high school students to enter an engineering career. The DECM Group is working closely with the Pre-College Program Coordinator. Activities include presentations, technology demonstrations, video shows and open houses. The FAMU-FSU College of Engineering is also working with a number of community colleges and other minority institutions (for example, Gulf Coast Community College, Fort Walton Beach Community College and Bethune-Cookman College) in an effort to recruit their graduates to continue studying engineering at our college. The FAMU-FSU College of Engineering held its second Industry Day in April 1997. More than 80 companies participated. There were technology demonstrations, technical presentations, roundtable discussions and lab tours. The DECM Group was actively involved in the Industry Day event to publicize the DOE/EM Dr. Massie Chairs of Excellence program.

The current outreach is focused on a school in Cairo, GA.  There is potential for a lot of good to come from volunteering to give presentations and get students excited about the STEM disciplines.  If you are interested in giving an interesting presentation, please contact James Dickson at jdickson at fsu.edu with a brief description of what you would like to do.
