We don’t need to wait for systemic change to make a difference today.

Anyone with an interest in STEM—including parents, educators, policymakers, and private citizens—can do their part starting now.

  • Make time for engineering in school by introducing engineering projects in the curriculum, with an emphasis on putting knowledge into practice, not drilling theory.
  • Create a smooth continuum of classroom engineering projects for student ages 6 to 18.
  • Empower educators with tools and materials to teach STEM concepts through engineering practices—using the same gear and techniques the pros use.
  • Support engineering programs that make instruction and resources available to young people outside the classroom.
