Engineering Expectations

School Programs heading banner


School Programs are on hiatus until this Fall.


Recently, our amazing camp director Jasmine Gaston was offered a position with NASA. She is currently working for NASA as an aerospace engineer with the propulsions group. Guess what project she is working on – the next moon mission!  How cool is that? 

We have hired a new engineer to take over the position, but he will not join our team until summer. Patrick Kistler studied ocean engineering and will oversee the fusion of our youth engineering programs with MarineQuest. This transition reflects our service as a pipeline to the university’s new Coastal Engineering undergraduate program, the first of its kind in the US.

We are excited for the future of Engineering Expectations.  Please check back this fall for our new programming.

Welcome to Engineering Expectations school programs, Engineering On-The-Go! Incorporate engineering in your classroom through hands-on activities that are based on state and national education standards. We bring engineering expertise, materials, and lessons to engage your students by putting the “E” in STEM.

Our lessons reinforce STEM learning by allowing the students to learn through creative problem solving.

We provide opportunities for your students to learn from a professional engineer who makes engineering relevant and fun! Pricing is based on three full hours of instruction and hands-on experiential learning for schools in the Wilmington area. Individual pricing may vary based on distance, program length, and number of students.
