TryEngineering.org

TryEngineering.org is a website that provides free pre-university-level engineering resources for educators, parents, and students. The site offers a catalog of engineering lesson plans with hands-on design challenges, resources for teaching in a virtual environment, career profiles, games, and much more.

TryEngineering lesson plans and toolkit

IEEE has developed several lesson plans to connect students ages 8-18 with the world of engineering. These hands-on lessons reinforce key engineering concepts while building students’ critical-thinking, team-building, and problem-solving skills.

Each lesson provides a hands-on design challenge using low-cost materials. All lesson plans are engineer and teacher reviewed and aligned to national education standards.

The Engineering Lesson Plan Toolkit provides a fun video and PowerPoint presentation outlining the 15 most used TryEngineering lesson plans. The toolkit helps to support teachers on using the lesson plans both virtually or in the classroom.

TryEngineering Together™

TryEngineering Together is a unique eMentoring program from IEEE and Cricket Media that pairs volunteers from sponsoring companies with students in grades 3–5 to explore the wonders of STEM and encourage kids to pursue STEM careers. Designed to increase the diversity of the future STEM workforce, TryEngineering Together targets under-resourced communities, providing free STEM resources and lessons to grade 3–5 classrooms. Seeking sponsors and classrooms now. Learn more.

TryEngineering Summer Institute

Designed for rising grade 8–12 students, IEEE TryEngineering Summer Institute introduces students to the exciting fields of engineering and technology. Institute experiences will help students discover their interests, develop STEM skills, build confidence, and unlock their potential for future academic and career paths in engineering. During the immersive two-week overnight program, students will gain engineering foundations, learn how engineers think, and understand how a career in engineering can make a difference in the world. Learn more. 

Teacher In-Service Program (TISP)

Through the Teacher-in-Service Program, IEEE volunteers facilitate in-service sessions for local teachers using lesson plans found on the TryEngineering.org website. Volunteers support teachers with how to engage their students through the use of simple and engaging hands-on activities.

The Engineering Lesson Plan Toolkit provides a fun video and PowerPoint presentation outlining the 15 most-used TryEngineering lesson plans. The toolkit helps to support both teachers and volunteers on using the lesson plans  virtually and in the classroom.

IEEE Presidents' Scholarship

Established in 1999, the IEEE Presidents’ Scholarship recognizes a deserving student for an outstanding project that demonstrates an understanding of electrical engineering, electronics engineering, computer science, or other IEEE fields of interest. The winner is selected annually from students presenting projects at the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair.
