Engineering Outreach and Talent Development

Helping K-12 youth in Iowa discover the engineer inside

We need innovative thinkers in our ever-changing world. Together with families, educators and volunteers, we help Iowa youth to identify and develop the interest they have in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). We believe that with encouragement, all students can build the confidence to see themselves as future engineers. From artificial hearts to rockets to Mars, developing the engineering mindset is where it all begins.
