CJ STEMM Idol Speakers - UD ETHOS

The motto of the CJ STEMM program is, “Empowering students to serve the world.” While University of Dayton engineering students Craig Attenweiler ‘16 and Katrina Staker ‘13 didn’t attend CJ, they certainly know all about living out this philosophy.

Over the summer, Craig and Katrina each decided to use their engineering knowledge and expertise to assist the needy in South America and Asia through the university’s ETHOS cultural immersion program. CJ students are invited to come hear about their adventures this Tuesday, Sept. 9 during the next STEMM Idol Speaker presentation.

DBJ Cover Story: Rethinking the Classroom

In a constantly evolving world replete with smart devices, social media and mobile apps, how are educators able to effectively reach students? By adapting.
