NBC4 Washington: Students use day off to learn from NASA engineer

February 20, 2024

Engineering Tomorrow leads Don Bosco Cristo Rey High School through an exciting day of STEM learning.

On Presidents’ Day, Engineering Tomorrow led students from Don Bosco Cristo Rey High School through hands-on labs centered around electric vehicles and renewable energy, including building and racing EVs. These labs were designed to bridge gaps between STEM concepts students may learn in school and urgent, exciting applications in the real world. College students volunteering with Engineering Tomorrow also assisted with the event to inspire DCBR students to pursue a path in engineering — and fill a crucial need for skilled STEM workers with diverse perspectives. Among the lab leaders included Milton Davis, an OSAM-1 Space Vehicle Manager at NASA and Curriculum Coordinator at Engineering Tomorrow.
