The Outreach Metric Tool (OMT) is a simple 10 question survey to complete after your outreach events. These are events that focus on students ages 4-18 and/or their adult advocates such as parents, educators, and group leaders. These events should directly impact K-12 students, parents, and educators, to help them explore and understand engineering disciplines and careers. K-12 outreach events to be entered into the OMT include:
Examples of events to enter into the OMT include Invent It Build It at the WE national conference, one- and half-day workshops, competitions, weekend engineering expos, mentoring K-12 students, weeklong engineering summer camps, and individual meetings or formal talks given to K-12 students, parents, and/or educators by SWE members. Examples of events to avoid entering into the OMT include preparatory activities leading up to an event, such as individual mentoring or planning meetings, smaller events occurring in a larger overall event, and grant writing to fund special engineering events or outreach. In addition, duplicate entries of the same event should not be entered. Please coordinate with those participating at the event so that only one person enters the event into the survey tool.
