Student Mentoring Program

The Society of American Military Engineers' Student Mentoring Program (SMP) is designed to stimulate secondary school students' interest and excitement in engineering, architecture and related sciences. SMP is a critical thinking program that  challenges students to solve real world problems in the community. The Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) and the Peter Kiewit Institute (PKI) provide teachers and students in this program with mentors from engineering/architectural fields, guidelines, teacher/ student workshops, and an authentic audience for the demonstration of student solutions. STEM skills (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), team work, sustainable design, presentation skills, use of graphic materials, model development, cost estimating, and creative, persuasive and technical writing are all promoted in the SMP experience.
