ASME DropMEin! Program is a collaboration with ComEd’s Communities of the Future in Rockford, Illinois and Chicago’s Bronzeville neighborhood

The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and ComEd are proud to empower the next generation of engineers with DropMEin!: a science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) initiative that brings engineers and other STEM professionals into elementary and middle school classrooms to enhance curriculum and inspire the future STEM workforce in Illinois.
