Engineering Practices in Color [EPIC] was founded in May of 2018 by Ph.D. student Brooke Danielsson with the goal of introducing STEM to children with learning differences. Using a multi-sensory curriculum, Brooke, Conway Lab members, and fellow PhD students teach engineering activities once a month at a local middle school for dyslexic students.
