Why we do this
The education system as it exists doesn’t reach every student the way it needs to. As our society has changed, educational needs of the students have changed, as well. While the school districts are doing their best to keep up with technology and the quickly growing need for STEM education, they are limited by politics, funding and the ongoing arguments about how to change education. Students can’t wait for their schools to catch up to society. At the Puget Sound centers of e² Young Engineers, we are dedicated to providing students of all ages an opportunity to be involved in STEM education, and find excitement in the possibilities with the hands on approach we offer. Not only do they get to build mechanical models- they are encouraged to be creative problem solvers and make improvements. In real life there is not always just one correct answer. This is true with the Puget Sound e² Young Engineers programs, as well.
Jenn Chevalier, Director
Owning an e² Young Engineers franchise has allowed Jennifer to pursue her love of STEM that started as she pursued her Bachelor of Arts in Elementary/Math and Reading Education from Eastern Washington University and earned her secondary endorsement in mathematics from Seattle University. Before pursuing a public school teaching career, Jennifer taught at preschool and college. After earning her Master’s in Teaching degree from the Evergreen State College, she began teaching in secondary schools. Because of this, Jennifer is well aware of the need for STEM education. While in college, Jennifer worked as a math and reading tutor. She has taught for the Tumwater and Shelton school districts, as well as at Grays Harbor College in Aberdeen. Outside of Mathnasium, Jennifer has two children- one still at home in school and the other grown. Her youngest keeps her very busy with school, activities, and sports. She is also active in the community, sitting on several boards, including the Professional Education Advisory Board for Saint Martin’s College and at The Evergreen Sportsmen’s Club.
