In the Knoxville School District, the PEERS program has been instrumental in showing our middle school students what their options are when looking for a career in engineering. The engineers that visit or present at assemblies, make the information simple and interesting for the students. Students are not always sure about what they want to do or what is available to them in life. This program is an excellent way to provide information to students and give them hands on experiences from professionals in their community and the workforce. It shows them how rewarding a career in engineering can be.
