Oxy Sponsors Jackling Introduction to Engineering III

Posted by Jude Enete on September 18, 2023

Summer Camps for K-12 students are back to 100% in-person at Missouri S&T, with multiple camps hosted on the Rolla campus each week throughout June and July. S&T’s largest and most popular camp is Jackling Introduction to Engineering, which attracts hundreds of young men and women interested in engineering education and careers over three different sessions. Oxy, an energy company, a chemical manufacturer, and a carbon management leader, stepped up again this year and sponsored the third session of Intro.

“Oxy is investing in the next generation of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) students and professionals,” said Courtney Jones, founding director of the Kummer Center for STEM Education. “They are forward-thinking and, by supporting young minds who are already interested in their industry, Oxy is contributing in a positive way to its own professional pipeline.”

During camp, young men and women are introduced to a variety of engineering fields with demonstrations and activities related to each discipline. They learn about what engineers do, what tools they use and how the various engineering fields affect everyday life. Engineering faculty and science groups present brief overviews of their areas of focus and the exciting technological challenges on which their graduates work.

“The Intro camp connects the dots between engineering education and engineering professions,” said Jones. “Our summer camps are designed to expose campers to various engineering disciplines through hands-on activities and team design competitions while making new friends and enjoying a taste of campus life, too.”

Oxy’s sponsorship provided several camp scholarships, camp materials for the hands-on activities, and learning supplies that were purchased and used for camps.
