    STEM Outreach

    Sarah Bailey, a science teacher at Buffalo Middle School in Wayne County, WV, received a STEM grant through the state of West Virginia this past year. The grant consisted of a project wind turbine project to help her students understand engineering design and construction. To assist and mentor her students she reached out to the USACE Huntington District for volunteers. Multiple engineers from various disciplines answered the call and have been mentoring via email exchange with groups of kids that were put into Science Inquiry Teams (SITs). The teams have sent their design summary for review and engineering staff preformed a review and responded with constructive comments.
