Engineering Bits & Bytes Days

EB&B Days are STEM curriculum enrichment experiences held on the NC State Centennial campus for students in underserved elementary, middle, and high schools with programming focused on young women and minority students. These half-day events include K-12 grade-appropriate hands-on, open-ended engineering challenges and often include tours highlighting engineering research. Please note that demand for this program exceeds availability.  We will contact you if your school is selected! Challenges are mapped to the NC Educational Standards. 

All students are invited to attend, including school groups and homeschooled students. Join us for a day of fun and learning!

NOTE: Parents, teachers, and chaperones must stay with their children/students throughout the entire event, from 9:00 am – until the end of the program.

High School Program

Our high school EB&B event offers 9th-12th grade students four hours of authentic problem-solving adventures, and engineering experiences focused on topics ranging from sustainable energy to cryptoanalysis. Students will tour the Entrepreneurship Garage, the Hunt Library, and various engineering research labs, and receive a seek-peek into campus life and dormitory living at Albright Entrepreneurship Village!

NC State engineering undergraduate ambassadors (EAs) will be available for Q&A throughout the day about engineering admission requirements, scholarships, and college life, and to provide suggestions on how best to prepare for an amazing college experience.

Middle School Program

EB&B engineering challenges for middle schoolers are tailored made and focused on the NC Standard Course of Study for 6th-8th grade science and math.  Students are introduced to the Engineering Design Problem-Solving Process which they use to guide their choices to complete challenges.

Elementary School Program

EB&B offers elementary students the opportunity to continue the journey of understanding how things work — they “Think and Do” all while playing. Students learn about the engineering habits of mind as they engage in challenges that promote creativity, communication, optimism, resilience, collaboration, and new thinking strategies when presented with problem-solving tasks.
