Cleveland STEP February Session Commemorates Black History Month and National Engineers Week


Cleveland STEP commemorated Black History Month and National Engineers Week for its February session.

Members of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) along with representatives from Hazen and Sawyer participated in a panel discussion. Panelists challenged students to broaden their educational horizons, ask questions, and not be afraid to switch paths. 

Students also heard about NSBE, Jr., an initiative by the NSBE that provides activities to help K-12 students discover firsthand how engineering and technology relate to the world around them.

Staff members of Hazen and Sawyer taught Cleveland STEP students about the power of hydraulics and how it can be used to move cars, building materials, and even people. They also presented students with materials to build a hydraulic claw.
