Calling Detroit Alumni for Alternative Spring Break

Students from the Michigan Tech National Society of Black Engineers will visit seven middle and high schools in Detroit to promote college and engineering. In the evenings, they will conduct Family Engineering Night events at three K-8 schools. NSBE’s Alternative Spring Break is conducted in collaboration with the Detroit Public Schools Office of Science and Detroit Math & Science Center, and funded in part, with a grant from John Deere.
