The Society of Manufacturing Engineers Education Foundation funded $815,000 to its industry partner, Project Lead The Way, for expansion of its Gateway Academy, a summer program that introduces 6th to 8th grade students to the basics of engineering concepts.

The Gateway Academy will help 300 middle schools across the United States prepare students for pre-engineering and technology based coursework. The one-week summer camp events introduce students to a learning experience based on imagination, innovation, and discovery.

“Increasing numbers of young people are becoming aware of our Gateway Academy and enthused about taking advantage of its more challenging coursework,” says Bart Aslin, director, SME Education Foundation. “All due, we think, to involved parents and teachers who understand the importance of science, technology, engineering, and math courses that prepare students to meet the demands of a global economy.”
