Become a Champion of Engineering Outreach
How do students decide to become engineers? At the College of Engineering, we think it’s because at some time in their lives, they were fortunate enough to learn what engineers do from a real engineer. That’s why we’re dedicated to bringing the experience of engineering to students of all ages in our community. Year round, we create fun, interactive learning opportunities that connect kids with professional engineers so they can learn first hand what engineering is all about.
We’re proud to report that the demand for our outreach programs is growing every year! Now we face the challenge of growing the funds to keep pace with that demand. As a member of the engineering community you can become an Engineering Outreach Champion with a yearly gift to underwrite the cost of these activities. Moreover, as an Engineering Outreach Champion, you gain the name recognition as a difference-maker in our community.
Help us build a strong pipeline of future engineering students by becoming one of our Engineering Outreach Champions!
