The linchpin for these initiatives is Engineering Dreams, a multi-disciplinary virtual experience designed to engage K-12 students nationwide in the biggest challenges of today while opening the door to future STEM career possibilities.
Through Engineering Dreams, ASME is the leading provider of standards-aligned K-12 engineering education content in the United States, reaching over 35K+ schools annually through the Discovery Education Experience platform.
Beyond the classroom, the Engineering Dreams website offers open, equitable access to the core content for free, inviting a more diverse and inclusive audience of students and educators to explore engineering.
ASME DropMEin! events bring ASME member volunteers and other STEM practitioners into K-12 classrooms, both virtually and in-person, to share their professional experiences.
In classrooms from coast to coast—80% Title 1-qualified—today’s diverse and inspired mechanical engineers shine a bright light on how engineers imagine and build a better future. DropMEin! visits demonstrate:
- The power of diverse and inclusive teams
- How ordered thinking leads to creative solutions
- That sustainable new technologies can meet the needs of real people
During the 2022/23 academic year, ASME will engage with over 2,000 students during DropMEIn! virtual visits.
