Mercer’s Entrepreneurship Engineering Education Program (MEEEP) and Robotics Club are teaming up to host a speaking event this Friday, Sept. 4 in order to raise awareness for Real I.M.P.A.C.T.  This local, non-profit organization seeks to inspire and ready young women for STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) careers.
According to the organization’s website, Real I.M.P.A.C.T’s mission is to “provide the youth with support in academics and prevention services in order to develop Intelligent and Motivated People to Actively Change the Times through a STEM and literacy focus.”
Guest Speaker Geneva West, the executive director of Real I.M.P.A.C.T, will be on campus this Friday evening in order to explain the program’s goals and to recruit student volunteers for the cause.

Ben Kasson, president of MEEEP, said that the clubs hope to see participation from science and engineering students in particular.  However, all students who wish to serve the community are welcome to attend and are encouraged to invite their friends as well.

Food and drinks will be provided for those who attend the event, which is to be held in Room 110 of the Science and Engineering Building lecture hall at 5:30 pm.
