Calling All Engineers! We Need Your Expertise!

Jackson-Reed High School boasts over several career academies. One of the largest academies within the school is the NAF Academy of Engineering.  In our efforts to ensure our engineering students are receiving a quality experience during their time in the academy, we want to build a culture of showcasing and celebrating student work with their families. But we also want students to stretch and grow their standards of practice through feedback and conversations with industry professionals.

This is where you come in!

We are planning an engineering expo here at Jackson-Reed on December 6th from 6:00-8:00pm.

Students from all levels of our engineering courses will be sharing projects science-fair style.

We are looking for a a variety of engineers to work with our students.

  • Give feedback on projects
  • Give students an audience to practice their presentation skills
  • Host a table to showcase your professional experiences that relate to the projects or can inspire the students
  • Provide the support of the engineering community.

6:00 - 7:30 Student Project Fair with Industry Professional Judging
7:30 - 8:00 Industry Professional Tabling & Networking Event for Students

The second half of the evening will involve a chance for you to show off!

  • Students and industry professionals will trade places and you will have a chance to set up the table with at least one interactive display, artifact, visual, and/or swag.
  • We want students to walk away from your table with an understanding of your role as an engineer, a project that you have or are currently working on that you are excited about, and either a piece of career advice or ways that you can support their growth in the future (feedback on future projects, college/career advice, mentorship, internships, etc).
