The EDS-ETC Program

eds_etc_logoIn order to excite young minds, EDS has created the Engineers Demonstrating Science: an Engineer Teacher Connection or EDS-ETC program.

The goal of the program is to enable EDS chapter members to visit local schools or host events designed to engage young students in the field of electrical engineering. By utilizing the easy-to-use Elenco Snap Circuits® kits, students learn about electronic circuits using a "hands-on" approach to experience the exciting and creative field of electronics. We hope to encourage them to consider electrical and electronic engineering as a career.

These versatile tools, along with our members' enthusiasm and expertise, are used to demonstrate the many applications of circuits and motivate young students to explore the electron devices field.

Begun in 2011 by EDS Secretary Fernando Guarin, under then President Renuka Jindal, the program grew with the help of volunteers from the Rochester, Boise and Mid-Hudson Valley Chapters. The program now has dozens of EDS chapters participating, worldwide. Dedicated volunteers are hosting EDS-ETC events with their local science teachers ranging from the 4th through 12th grade levels.
