The EMW is one of the principal STEM events conducted by DAU and was derived from the DoD EMW workshop (Workshop Engineering, WSE-006 in the DAU iCatalog).
The STEM EMW is a version of the EMW that is tailored to fit high-school students through the removal of DoD specific acquisition topics.
The STEM EMW is conducted in two different formats to provide an opportunity for students to attend during the school year and the summer vacation.
The school year STEM EMW is conducted during a regularly scheduled engineering design class that meets 5 days a week in 90-minute sessions.
“We are excited to see the team get involved with giving back to the community,” says a team member at EMW. “We work hard in our careers and it is exciting to know that we can have such a strong impact with just a few of us.”
EMW has also volunteered with the Del Rosario Foundation and Operation Smile Organization.
