Middle school students from the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Holyoke, Inc. learn digital circuits and programming concepts from undergraduate electrical engineering majors at UMass Amherst. The program was developed by UMass Amherst's M5, an educational initiative of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The two week summer workshop teaches students electrical engineering skills to create a “beat machine” where they were able to present and keep their final products. Students were informed about math and sciences courses that can potentially prepare them to study engineering at UMass Amherst or elsewhere.
