The links below contains materials to help future engineers find the right career as well as information and project ideas for K-12 instructors looking to help their students learn more about how engineers make modern life possible. These sites are independent of the UND College of Engineering and Mines.
Engineering Go For It!
eGFI is proudly brought to you by the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE). We are committed to promoting and enhancing efforts to improve K-12 STEM and engineering education.
The EngineerGirl website is designed to bring national attention to the exciting opportunities that engineering represents for girls and women.
The site was launched in 2001 with input from a specially selected Girls Advisory Board—bright, energetic girls from all over the United States and Canada. In 2012 a new Girls Advisory Board was instituted in order to re-design the site for a modern audience. The ongoing work of EngineerGirl is overseen by the EngineerGirl Steering Committee with the generous support of our sponsors.
The website is a service of the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) and grew out of the work of the NAE Committee on the Diversity of the Engineering Workforce.
American Society of Civil Engineers
ASCE provides a full suite of quality resources to support volunteers, parents and other adults working with students in grades preK - 12. These resources acquaint students with the role of civil engineers in the community and opportunities for hands-on experiences with the engineering design process. ASCE's proven resources appeal to younger audiences and are aligned with national educational standards for science and mathematics.
The DiscoverE (formerly National Engineers Week Foundation) mission is to sustain and grow a dynamic engineering profession through outreach, education, celebration, and volunteerism.
DiscoverE helps stakeholders expand community and educational outreach by:
- Providing resources and turnkey programs for employees and volunteers
- Supporting strong workforce diversity initiatives
- Promoting positive visibility within the engineering and technology communities, including college students and the public-at-large
DiscoverE and its working coalition of 100+ organizations is known as one of the most effective collaborations today, recognized by corporations and engineering societies, and mentioned in two reports by the National Academy of Engineering.
The Engineering Place
Here at The Engineering Place, we have collected some of our favorite resource materials for teachers to use in their classrooms. We hope these materials are helpful to your students as they explore the vast field of engineering.
Science Buddies mission is to help students from all walks of life to build their literacy in science and technology so they can become productive and engaged citizens in the 21st century. We have created personalized learning tools, over 15,000 pages of scientist-developed subject matter (including experiments based on the latest academic research), and an online community of science professionals who volunteer to advise students. We also provide resources to support parents and teachers as they guide students doing hands-on science projects. Representing much more than a website, Science Buddies quickly and efficiently matches students with the information that will hold their interest and answer their questions. We provide a bridge between scientists and students, giving students access to current scientific research and simultaneously giving scientists a way to reach out to young people interested in their fields.
Tufts University Center for Engineering Education and Outreach
The members of the Center for Engineering Education and Outreach are dedicated toward improving engineering education in the classroom; from Kindergarten to college. We have a research program aimed at understanding how kids and adults learn engineering. This research then informs our development of various educational tools. We collaborate with a number of companies to bring these tools into the classroom and then our outreach arm works with teachers around the world to further refine these tools and to support the teacher-user community. The Center houses faculty, staff, and graduate students from engineering disciplines and the education department.
