Spark of Curiosity

The child who needs to know how things work have the makings of a great engineer. Spark the curiosity of your child or student by enrolling him or her in one of Speed School’s outreach programs.

Speed School Outreach Programs

Engineering is an important and exciting field of study, and we want everyone — particularly kids — to know it. We offer special programming to promote engineering to local elementary and middle school students.

If your child or student is interested in an engineering career, he or she can start exploring now.

Contact Speed School Admissions & Outreach Office,  for more information.

Girls Rule STEM+ Summit
Speed School hosts a full day of events to engage girls interested in STEM+ (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) careers. We offer programming for students from third to twelfth grades. Our most recent summit was sponsored by the J.B. Speed School of Engineering, the UofL School of Medicine, and the UofL Army ROTC.

Brown-Forman INSPIRE

Brown-Forman INSPIRE (Increasing Student Preparedness and Interest in the Requisites for Engineering) is a summer enrichment program for local high school students. Traditionally underrepresented populations (ex. female and ethnic minority students) participate in lab-oriented studies and acquire a degree of technical proficiency throughout this two-week program.

Participants typically will have completed ninth to eleventh grade, have above-average math and science skills, a solid academic record, teacher recommendations, and a commitment to participate.

UofL's J. B. Speed School of Engineering, School of Medicine and Army ROTC held a day of sessions designed to engage girls from 3rd to 12th grades in STEM+H content through hands-on experiences and access to women in science, technology, engineering, math and health.
