The Chem-E-Car as a Vehicle for Service Learning through K-12 Outreach
Chirdon, William
Chemical Engineering Education, v51 n1 p11-17 Win 2017
This article presents the results of combining the American Institute of Chemical Engineers' (AIChE) Chem-E-Car competition activities with engineering outreach to K-12 students in a service-learning course. Survey results are presented to show how the program develops technical skills as well as leadership, teamwork, and communication skills in undergraduate students. The benefits of such a program to the K-12 students, undergraduate students, chapter advisor, department, and community are discussed along with the challenges in implementation.
