On May 5th, 2012, the LEGACY Volunteer Partners program hosted an engineering workshop at Patriots Technology Training Center's (Patriots-TTC) 15th Annual Youth Summit on Technology, held on the campus of Bowie State University.

The Youth Summit brought together elementary through high school youth and their parents to be enriched by informative workshops and exhibits centered on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields of study. Youth from the Washington, DC metropolitan area and as far away as Richmond, VA and Pennsylvania participated in the event.

The workshop presented by LEGACY was entitled "Beyond Weapons: A Discussion on Nuclear Energy, Commercial Nuclear Power, and How It Relates to You."  Additionally, LEGACY members staffed an exhibit table to present information about LEGACY, Inc.  The workshop helped educate many youth on a STEM subject not often well-discussed in school; and the exhibit was successful in spreading the word about the various programs LEGACY, Inc. offers.
