Community Engagement

UB Engineering engages with the community in Buffalo and our region through a wide variety of programs and interests.  Among these are K-12 educational activities, which all aim to stimulate student interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), and to encourage their curiosity in the world around them.  

Hands-on science experiments at UB together with in-classroom science lessons form the basis of the UB-National Grid-Westminster Community Charter School partnership.
BEAM is a cooperative educational enrichment program that prepares inner city, minority, female and other under-represented students for careers in science, engineering, and technology.

UB's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and National Grid team up each summer to sponsor a four-day engineering workshop for Western New York students entering their sophomore or junior year in high school.

Tech Savvy is a daylong science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) career conference designed to attract girls to these fields and to inform families about STEM education and careers.
