Description

Explore strategies to build STEM Programs that entice and engage our underrepresented communities in high demand careers.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: DR. MARTIN CULPEPPER, Waterloo East Graduate and MIT Professor
Dr. Martin Culpepper is widely-respected leading authority in the field of precision engineering. His research focuses on the design, fabrication, and testing of high-performance machine systems that make, manipulate or measure parts and features at length-scales and/or precision levels not previously possible or practical.

Culpepper's courses at MIT challenge students in the rigorous design of machine elements based on engineering principles that truly embody the mens et manus MIT motto. He currently serves as MIT's "Maker Czar" and directs MIT's Project Manus Program, which has been tasked with upgrading and enhancing MIT's maker capabilities. This includes improving access for students, conversion of old spaces/equipment, introduction or new technologies, creation of new campus spaces and outreach to other schools in the form of collaboation, resource provision, and consulting.

Professor Culpepper is a recipient of the National Science Foundation Presidential Early Career Award (PECASE), two R&D 100 Awards, a TR100 award, a Joel and Ruth Spira Teaching Award and is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
