See how ASME INSPIRE, the classroom-based STEM education program for K-12 students, opens a window on the engineering profession, showing students at a Brooklyn middle school the potential rewards of an engineering career.

ASME INSPIRE uses videos, animations, and gaming scenarios to build students’ knowledge of engineering and core STEM concepts. Modules focus on leading-edge topics like big data, 3D printing, the algorithms that power the web, and the latest manufacturing and design technologies

“Maybe I can be an engineer,” says Ayaan, an 8th grader and INSPIRE graduate at Joseph B. Cavallaro Middle School, one of the more than 1,300 schools in all 50 states where INSPIRE is in use. See the effect INSPIRE has on Ayaan and his bright, eager, curious classmates.
