FOCUS ON STEM
An important focus of our attention has been encouraging interest in STEM, specifically engineering and design among Oshkosh’s high school students through the FIRST robotic competition. Our local team, Oshkosh Wave #2826 has done supremely well in their first three years of competition. Triangle provides mentoring opportunities, hands-on instruction and parts donation to this cause.
We believe that encouraging interest in STEM is socially beneficial, not only to the manufacturing sector, but to all. Triangle routinely provides shop tours to high school and college students and we work with neighboring colleges for internship and employment opportunities.
HELPFUL LINKS FOR FUTURE ENGINEERS
Tomorrow's Engineers (UK)
Working with businesses, not for profit organisations and charities, the programme is made up of a number of initiatives, such as industry visits, workshops, Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) Ambassador partnerships and careers resources, to help schools to incorporate engineering into the current curriculum and plant the seeds needed to grow local engineering talent required by businesses.
The DiscoverE (formerly National Engineers Week Foundation) mission is to sustain and grow a dynamic engineering profession through outreach, education, celebration, and volunteerism.
FIRST was founded in 1989 to inspire young people's interest and participation in science and technology. Based in Manchester, NH, the 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit public charity designs accessible, innovative programs that motivate young people to pursue education and career opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math, while building self-confidence, knowledge, and life skills.
