#BigBeacon Twitter chat – Apr 27 – Accelerating Student Technology Invention & Innovation for Scalable Impact
Join VentureWell on Wednesday, April 27 at 8 p.m. ET for a Twitter discussion about:…
We preach to our students that it is important to consider the audience. But do we do this as instructors? Do we really listen to the voices of our students? Perhaps we should do more listening and less preaching?
In this week’s #BigBeacon Twitter chat we will get to hear from a number of students from EMpwr. We will learn about:
EMpwr is a new student engagement program run by the Kern Entrepreneurial Engineering Network (KEEN program). It calls upon student leaders from 10 different universities all across the country to create student chapters that enrich the engineering education by promoting the entrepreneurial mindset. The entrepreneurial mindset is defined using the 3C’s: Curiosity, Connections, and Creating value.
This can be done in any way the students feel works for their peers, keeping in mind the five guiding principles of leadership, mentorship, service, competition, and outreach. The overall goal of this program is to create well-rounded engineers ready to tackle the world’s big problems.
