LONG BEACH — A group of fifth-graders and their parents moved into a Cal State Long Beach dorm Friday to participate in the “My Daughter is an Engineer” residential program.
It’s designed as a live-and-learn experience for the 15 students and their parents to explore the realm of engineering.
The students were selected from six Long Beach Unified and two Compton Unified schools identified as having high-minority student enrollment and serving low-income families. Participating students are from Chavez and Edison elementary schools in Long Beach and Kennedy Elementary School in Compton.
