The TEAK Project
The TEAK (Traveling Engineering Activity Kits) Project is a program that involves engineering students at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) in teaching pre-college students about engineering. This program is unique in that RIT engineering students are responsible for every facet of the TEAK Project, from developing ideas for engaging educational activities, to designing and building the kit hardware and writing the accompanying lesson plans, to traveling to area classrooms as instructors.
Faculty, staff, and students from across RIT have been involved in all aspects of the development of The TEAK Project.
Partial support for the TEAK Project is provided by the National Science Foundation’s Course, Curriculum, and Laboratory Improvement (CCLI) program under Award No. 0737462.
Partial support for development of the TEAK Energy & Environment kids was provided under an American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air-Conditioning Engineers Senior Projects Grant
