Illuminating the “E” in STEM for all students
ASME INSPIRE is a suite of K-12 STEM education initiatives that teach students how to “think like an engineer” to become problem-solvers for good.
Now available to more than 750,000 students across all 50 U.S. states—roughly three in four participating schools are Title I-qualified—ASME’s K-12 programs introduce students to the potential rewards of an engineering career, emphasizing that it is a meaningful profession that can dramatically contribute to improving quality of life.
ENGINEERING DREAMS is ASME’s collaboration with Discovery Education. It is an educational initiative designed to engage K-12 students nationwide in the biggest challenges of today while helping them unlock future success through engineering. Engineering Dreams offers educators and students a variety of interactive, standards-aligned learning resources to inspire the next generation of creative thinkers, risk takers and ethical problem-solvers.
ASME is a signature partner of the STEM Careers Coalition™ – the first-of-its-kind national STEM initiative powered by business leaders and anchored in schools by Discovery Education. Other partners in the STEM Careers Coalition include Boeing, Microsoft, P&G, Chevron, and the Manufacturing Institute, among others.
DropMEin! brings ASME member volunteers into K-12 classrooms, both virtually and in-person, to share their experiences as professional engineers, answer questions, and explain the rewards and opportunities available to those who pursue an engineering career.
