What we do
Our curriculum focuses on teaching pre-university students how to take these natural resources and engineer them into the products they need. By producing products locally, using resources that are naturally and readily available, this production will benefit the local community economically as well.
Our goal is to generate excitement for this type of engineering by engaging high school students in real-world, tangible and hands-on learning experiences. And by doing so, developing the next generation of local engineers who will be equipped to contribute to an enhanced engineering infrastructure that will drive economic growth in their countries.
About the Gelfand Global STEMpower Initiative
The project is staffed by Gelfand Global Fellows–graduate students in chemical engineering who complement their traditional coursework and research with an enriching and impactful experience.
