One of the primary important objectives of our project is to train our undergraduate students at the EE Department on how to be successful leaders and to present themselves outside Southern University. Our undergraduate students, selected to work as a part of the research team, participated in many activities to introduce the EE Department to both Middle and High school students. This project grants a solid background and foundation in Electronics, Robotics, and different areas of Electrical and Computer Engineering areas to our undergraduate students. This qualified them to train our undergraduate students who use the CERL and also the students in both middle and high schools.

The research team not only organized workshops but also, organized many successful visits to high and middle schools. Both workshops and visits gain our research team (undergraduate students) much experience in how to lead, present, and perform research.
