About TryEngineering.org

What Is TryEngineering.org?

TryEngineering.org is a pre-university engineering education resource geared towards teachers and students. Our goal is to raise interest in engineering careers, improve access to high-quality educational resources, and show students how engineering can be a part of their future.

Launched in 2006 as a collaboration of IEEE, IBM, and the New York Hall of Science, TryEngineering.org offers a variety of resources that will engage and excite students, as well as advance the skill and knowledge of educators.

Here, teachers will find access to over 130 free hands-on, low-cost, engineering lesson plans. Each lesson plan targets specific age ranges and aligns with education standards to allow teachers and students to apply engineering principles in the classroom. We give teachers all of the resources they need to teach engineering and the tips and tricks to keep their students interested.

Students will find online engineering games and apps, to introduce them to engineering in a fun and interactive way. They can also explore ways to get involved in engineering activities, such as camps, competitions, research opportunities, internships, and scholarships.

We also provide a portal to research engineering majors, universities with accredited engineering programs, and advice from professional and undergraduate engineers, along with descriptions of their lifestyles and experiences.

TryEngineering.org is committed to raising interest and awareness in engineering, computing, and technology, and strives to help students discover the engineer within them. We believe that engineering is an exciting and rewarding profession, and invite you to share in our enthusiasm about this rich and influential discipline.
