Engage the next generation of engineers!

Inspire the Engineers of Tomorrow: Here are some ways to foster the next generation of innovators.

Engineering Design Challenges
The best way to explore the world of engineering is to experience it. Engage students in engineering with easy to use lesson plans. The lesson plans introduce students to the engineering design process through hands-on activities using low cost materials. Check out the Top 10 TryEngineering lessons:

Engineering Careers
Challenge students to consider how they will change the world.  Encourage them to explore a career in engineering. Show them how engineers are the inventors and problem solvers of the world using the Career Infographic and career resources found on

Engaging Engineering Games
With topics ranging from inventing and coding to environmental and electrical engineering, the games on guide students to learn STEM content while having fun.

Get Involved
Support students interested in engineering by encouraging them to participate in contests, internships, maker events, and summer schools in their local area.
