Philanthropy Dictates the Scale of TryEngineering’s Impact

TryEngineering - IEEE’s STEM portal

TryEngineering inspires educators, parents, and students around the world to embrace engineering education and foster the next generation of technology innovators. We do this by providing indispensable resources for educators, parents and students including lesson plans and activities that engage and inspire.

Our resources for educators, parents, and IEEE volunteers are completely free.

TryEngineering inspires the engineers of tomorrow. But to make this possible, we need the philanthropists of today to give generously to our programs. To be a philanthropist, you simply need to have a passion for our programs, and the ability to make a gift – of any size – to support our work.

Launched in 2006 as a collaboration of IEEE, IBM, and the New York Hall of Science, TryEngineering offers a variety of resources to engage and excite students about engineering and technology careers. Resources like the STEM Portal for IEEE Volunteers, which serves as a resource for all things related to Pre-University STEM programs and activities. To date, over 18,000 dedicated volunteers have organized more than 1,500 events across 60 countries. These efforts have reached nearly 130,000 students, engaged over 20,000 teachers, and involved 18,000 parents.

The global impact of TryEngineering is part of what has inspired volunteer and TryEngineering donor, Lorena Garcia.

“By investing in these amazing programs,” Lorena confidently states, “I am actively contributing to advancing STEM education, promoting diversity and inclusivity, and nurturing the next generation of engineers and technologists.”

You can read more about Lorena’s inspiration for giving to TryEngineering in her donor profile. Lorena’s gift, combined with the generosity of other individual donors is how TryEngineering can scale programs and add new resources. This includes our recent partnership with the IEEE Foundation and IEEE Educational Activities to launch a grant program that supports local IEEE groups in hosting STEM events in their communities.

Efforts like TryEngineering’s STEM web portal and the STEM Outreach Grant program will have ripple effects across the globe and through generations. All of this impact is made possible by the philanthropic generosity of individuals who believe in our vision of inspiring the next generation of technology innovators.
