South Central engineers mentor local students
Valley Metro is offering a one-of-its-kind STEM-focused program in South Phoenix. Engineers of the Future is a mentorship program for seventh and eighth grade students along the South Central Extension. Engineers working on the light rail extension are mentoring students during the school year and provide support on student design projects. As part of the program, students recently visited Arizona State University in Tempe, learning more about higher-education and meeting with students and faculty.
"Engineers of the Future has helped me understand math better and do better in my classes too,” said Jasmine Romero, Engineers of the Future student from Cesar Chavez Community School.
Engineers of the Future is one of the programs being offered to the community as part of the South Central Extension career and student development plan. To learn more about the program click here.
