Dr. Lynn Albers is a proponent of Hands-On Activities in the classroom and during out-of-school time programs. She believes that they complement any teaching style thereby reaching all learning styles. She just recently earned her doctorate in Mechanical Engineering from North Carolina State University where her research spanned three colleges and focused on Engineering Education; the first of its kind for NCSU. Her passions include but are not limited to Engineering Education and Energy Engineering.

The Energy Engineering and Education Outreach Model and the Need to Promote ST(EE)2MAbstractThe Energy Engineering and Education Outreach model was developed to engageundergraduates in both facilities management and K-12 engineering education outreach roles.Both roles shared a common theme, energy. By working with a mentor from the university’sfacilities management or energy center they would gain valuable experience in assessing energyusage, needs and areas of potential savings thereby helping the institution save energy. In the K-12 engineering education role, they would act as ambassadors of the institution and disseminatetheir intellectual knowledge to the local community through Family STEM Nights and otheroutreach avenues at local elementary schools.The model is a combination of two models from programs that have been successful at theuniversity. This paper details the need for this model and the need for promoting ST(EE)2M[Science, Technology, Energy Engineering, Engineering Education, and Math]. A model of thistype is unique because it combines the colleges of engineering with education and focuses onenergy.
