EEK! Engineering Education for Kids
EEK! Engineering Education for Kids is a weeklong immersive workshop to engage the curious, the creative, the intrepid, and the brave in solving real-world engineering problems. Students will discover how engineers really work, and how as future engineers they can take on some of the greatest challenges facing our local communities and our world.

Milk and Muffins
Milk and Muffins is a Saturday morning early literacy program offered to parents and children in Parramore and surrounding communities. UCF students are enrolled in the RED 3310 course, and they work with the children ages 3-6 years old. Teachers from Orange County Public Schools facilitate a parent group. In addition to small group experiences, the children and parents help to plant, grow and harvest vegetables in the Parramore Community Garden. We extend emergent literacy skills and vocabulary with these hands-on experiences. Each week Milk and Muffins ends with a large Circle Time where the parents, children and UCF students join together for stories, singing and dancing.
