Alum featured in Mansfield, OH, newspaper

Kettering graduate Leslie Nielsen was featured in a story in the Mansfield News Journal for her efforts through Project Lead the Way to teach middle schoolers about STEM Fields. From the story:

Nielsen said she will start by making students aware that everything around them was designed by someone.

“Too many kids, particularly girls, think engineering is some pie-in-the-sky thing they can’t do. It’s not,” said Nielsen, a Malabar High School graduate who earned her engineering degree from General Motors Engineering and Management Institute in Flint, Mich.

“Eighth-graders will take a problem-solving approach and learn about teaming — how to work together to solve problems, Nielsen said. “The curriculum will be based on state academic standards. Kids will learn how engineering ties into math and science.”
