National science program coming to Kaufman
By: Bobby Lewis
In 2000, Virginia high school teacher Dori Roberts began an after-school club called the Technology Student Association that participated in various engineering and science-based competitions. The group's membership eventually swelled to 180 students and Engineering for Kids was born.
“I tried to make the club fun, as well as competitive and that really appealed to a lot of students,” said Roberts, who is the Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Engineering for Kids.
