KCPT has partnered with Black & Veatch to bring a mentoring program to the Hickman Mills School District on engineering. The program which goes through December 11 has put an engineer in the classroom each week mentoring fifth grade students at Santa Fe Elementary and Dobbs Elementary on a variety of topics from carbon footprint, water treatment, where electricity comes from, what energy is and why it is important. The mentors have also engaged the students with fun activities relating to the topics. The goal of the program is to open up the world of engineering to the students and encourage them to consider a career path in the future.
