Do you want to solve important problems in the world and help others? What if you could help provide clean drinking water to everyone? Or you had the ability to develop a cure for cancer? Maybe you have thought about how you can stop the pollution of our planet, or maybe the idea of creating a rocket for space exploration just sounds fun.
Join us for a morning with representatives from ASU's Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering and learn about a college and career exploration program called Young Engineers Shape the World (YESW). This two-year program takes place during out-of-school time. Through hands-on activities, this program helps students learn about the various fields of engineering and seeks to increase the representation of women in the engineering fields. To register, please visit YESW. We are accepting Fall 2018 10th and 11th grade students.
 
If you are unable to attend an informational session but are still interested in applying to be a part of the program, please visit Young Engineers

PARENT INVOLVEMENT
JOIN THE SIT TEAM!

If you would like to be a "voting member" of the Schools Improvement Team, please submit your application by Friday, August 24, 2018.  A lottery drawing will be held at the August 28 Governing Board Meeting.  You will be notified after the meeting of the lottery results.  One parent representatives will be selected for the following grade levels:
Kindergarten
Grades 1-2
Grades 3-4
Grades 5-6
Grades 7-8
Grades 9-12 (2 representatives selected)


SIT TEAM APPLICATION
