Outreach Activities

C-Tech² Program
C-Tech² program targets rising junior and senior high school girls and offers an opportunity to learn about college life. ZT Group participated in 2017 C-Tech² program by offering a one-hour seminar with an interactive demo on thermoelectric energy conversion as well as attending the advisor-faculty lunches.
Student Transition Engineering Program (STEP)
STEP is a five-week summer bridge program at Virginia Tech for ~80 incoming engineering students per year. Zhiting interacted with the students through faculty research seminars and faculty lunches in the summers of 2015 and 2016, where she introduced her research and shared a big picture of thermal engineering.
Women’s Preview Weekend @ Virginia Tech
The Women’s Preview Weekend provides an opportunity for female students who have been offered admission to the College of Engineering to visit the campus and make an informed decision about attending the college. Zhiting met the prospective female engineering students and shared her own experience as a female engineer in 2015.
Friday Faculty Slush Rush
Zhiting hosted Friday Faculty Slush Rush events in the undergraduate community in Lee Hall in 2016, where she talked about her academic role as well as her life off-campus in a casual setting. This is a great chance to help students develop networking skills and inspire their interest in academic careers.
