Student Outreach ProgramsThe Philadelphia Engineering Foundation, the charitable arm of the Engineers' Club, developed a new student outreach website "Discover Engineering in Greater Philadelphia" courtesy of a grant from IBM. This website is a valuable resource for anyone seeking information about engineering, including:
This website has two main sections:
There are many websites that provide information about engineering, and new website provides links to many of them (and will add more as we become aware of them). What makes this website different is that it provides information on all areas of engineering and is focused on programs and engineering schools in the Greater Philadelphia Area.
If you are a student, teacher, parent, or counselor interested in finding out about engineering or these programs, click here.
If you have a K-12 engineering-related program, you can register as a “program provider” and add your program information to the searchable database. Click here to register and to enter your program information. Click on the upper right hand corner “Login for Program Providers” and then create an account. The account will need to be approved before you can enter information on any programs, but that is done as quickly as possible.
Many of the programs included on the website have indicated a need for additional volunteers and/or funding. The search function on the website allows you to search specifically for those opportunities.
