Although engineering is second only to teaching in the number of professional practitioners, there is an astounding level of ignorance of what it is that engineers do, even among children of engineers. The engineers participating in the Discover “E” program help to address this deficiency. They serve as role models and illustrate the importance of education in math and science, not only for a career in engineering but simply as preparation for living in our increasingly complex world. This program welcomes new volunteers to participate in this outreach effort. Even if you have never done anything like this before, you can take advantage of orientation sessions and be provided with materials to take with you into the classroom.
