Individual Mentoring & Tutoring Outreach Activity at Starbase 2.0 After School Program

The Department of Defense and Kingsley Field sponsored after school program is called Starbase 2.0.  During the 11 week program, approximately 30 students from Brixner, Henley and Lost River schools design custom slot cars for track racing using the CREO® CAD/CAE/CAM software. To fulfill the need of having software experienced near peers to help the kids, envoys were sent out to the schools to provide support for the teachers/staff. This effort was expanded this year and Oregon Tech students attended every session (3 hrs. / week) at each school. Both the director of the program, Marsha Beardsley and teachers from the schools commented that the contribution from the envoys was critical to the success of the overall program. All participants were invited, recognized and given awards at the end-of-year presentations and final competition held at Brixner MS in Klamath Falls on May 29, 2013.

We would be interested in helping your school with any competition or design / build project that you are implementing with your kids. We are very open to your ideas and we are developing some of our own.  Please let us know how we can help.
