Community outreach is a very important part of the mission of Clark Magnet Engineering. Through public demonstrations and events, we hope to inspire the next generation of engineers and leaders.
Clark students mentor several Lego robotics teams in the area. The elementary students are taught about general design principles and the process of building and programming robots. High school mentors work to keep the younger students on task, learning, and most importantly, having fun!
Clark students and teachers periodically give tours of our lab and demonstrations of our equipment for local elementary school students. Letting local students see the lab in action is crucial to inspiring young students to seek STEM education out themselves.
Clark’s FIRST Robotics team provides demonstrations of their past robots at community events. Letting community members, especially younger students, get an up close look at our designs is an important part of why we do what we do. We endeavor to inspire the next generation of STEM students.
Clark student also run engineering programs at the La Canada YMCA. The program is hosted in the YMCA’s Sparks Garage. Children are taught key engineering concepts through the completion of fun projects.
