What we do
inspiring future engineers
Welcome to connect2engineering, which is designed to connect students to engineers and engineering opportunities. The site was created by a coalition of representatives of engineering companies, non-profit organizations and educational institutions in the Midwest.
One of our main goals is to encourage women and unrepresented students to consider engineering careers, especially as there is a looming shortage of engineers throughout the industry. Our focus is on all K-12 students, along with parents and teachers.
connect2engineering is here to serve as a resource for engineering events and happenings in the region, as well as a comprehensive source for connecting with area professionals, students and faculty already in the engineering field. There’s no better way to find out about careers in engineering than from those who enjoy it every day.
WANTED: Engineer Volunteers
We're seeking engineers to inspire K-12 students to consider a career in engineering. Volunteers can connect with students and teachers in a variety of ways.
Do you have an engineering-related event to share?
connect2engineering is compiling area activities and events that help students, teachers and parents learn more about the exciting field of engineering. Check back often for new additions to the listing.
