Engineering Academy

The Engineering Society of Detroit’s has found success with their Girls in Engineering Academy and are now launching the Boys in Engineering Academy (BEA) program which promises to be a transformative space that empowers scholars to live their best lives. BEA is unique as it focuses on the whole person by integrating STEM learning with a student-centered, hands-on, and project-based approach. BEA scholars are provided access to powerful STEM learning experiences that challenge them to think deeply and critically. As STEM learners, they are empowered to use STEM as a tool for personal and social change.
