HOUGHTON — This week is Spring Break at Michigan Technological University, but for a group of Michigan Tech students from the Detroit area, it’s a working vacation. They’re coming home to try to get the next generation of Detroit school children excited about going to college and pursuing careers in science and engineering.

They will be doing classroom presentations at seven middle and high schools during the day Tuesday through Friday, March 12-15. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings, they’ll be conducting Family Engineering programs, with lots of hands-on activities to involve children and their parents.

Tuesday morning, they’ll be at Detroit Western High School, and in the afternoon and evening, at Clippert Academy. Wednesday morning, they’ll be at Frederic Douglass High School, and in the evening, at Ludington Magnet Middle School. Finally, on Friday, they’ll be at the Detroit International Academy for Young Women, Carver Academy and Martin Luther King High School.
