Building the Next Generation of Engineers
About Fenn Academy
Fenn Academy is a consortium among Cleveland State University's Washkewicz College of Engineering, local school districts and industry partners that collaborate in educational activities designed to encourage high school students to pursue post-secondary education and careers in engineering.
Fenn Academy also has member corporations and other supporters that donate and work with the College of Engineering. The corporations that donate, work with the college to ensure that students receive proper education and have up-to-date equipment to prepare them for the workfield.
Fenn Academy Activities
Fenn Academy has several member high schools that currently work directly with the College of Engineering. These high schools come to the college of engineering to receive a tour of the building, hear presentations on what an engineer does, and see lab demonstrations given by professors.
Engineering Activity Day High School groups are invited to participate in "hands-on" engineering activities, meet current engineering students and faculty, tour campus and view interesting video presentations.
Engineer For A Day Job Shadowing Program provides high school students in grades 9-12 with a glimpse of what a career in engineering would entail during a day-long visit to a local engineering organization. This activity occurs every February during National Engineers Week.
Operation STEM - A free STEM support program! Program includes a variety of activities including a summer institute, semester stipends, tuition free summer calculus scholarship, STEM mentors, and many more.
