Community Involvment

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.
