Engineering Instructor - Jeffrey Copperthite
Jeffrey designed the Summer Springboard program for engineering at Yale to introduce students to foundational principles of engineering. Because students work in teams, there are no math prerequisite courses. Students will be assigned to teams while taking into account each student’s math ability. He holds an M.Ed and is PLTW certified in five engineering courses.
