ENpowered Games

Overview

2018 ENpowered Games Competition from Project SYNCERE on Vimeo.


The Goal

Our goal is to increase America's talent pool by improving STEM education for under-represented youth.  Through their participation in this comprehensive STEM competition, up to 400 students will have an increased aptitude and appreciation for the STEM fields. Our hope is that by providing students with an initial spark, they will become energized by their involvement in the program and choose to continue their pursuit of STEM knowledge by participating in other programs such as our out-of-school program, E-CADEMY. 

The goals for the competition are to:

   Increase awareness of career opportunities in STEM

   Enhance positive attitudes toward STEM disciplines

   Develop an understanding of how to utilize the engineering design process to solve problems

   Gain skills in communication, critical thinking and collaboration

   Create a pipeline of students to participate in our year-round E-CADEMY program

   Expose families to the value of STEM careers

The Program

On May 25, 2018, over 400 students along with their families, teachers, and stakeholders will convened at the Museum of Science and Industry to participate in a daylong engineering competition. The students are participants in Project SYNCERE's ENpowered Program at their respective schools and will come together to showcase their knowledge and skills in STEM. 

Over the previous 15-weeks, Project SYNCERE's instructors have worked with the students either during an in-school or after-school program to teach students skills in 3 key STEM areas: engineering design thinking, mechanical engineering, and electrical engineering. During this time, Project SYNCERE’s staff led students through a series of mini-design projects to help them develop STEM skills in preparation for the upcoming competition. Instructors utilized effective strategies in team building, communication, and collaboration to ensure students learned to effectively work together to solve their design challenges.
