Mission + Vision
Empowering the Next Generation of Engineers and Driving Positive Change
Engineering for US All (e4usa) is an NSF-funded high school engineering program that opens engineering to a new generation of students and educators. Core to the e4usa mission is the nationwide expansion of student and teacher access to engineering, with intentional efforts to reach populations traditionally underrepresented in the field. To date, e4usa involves 91 participating high schools with over 5,000 students. e4usa students explore engineering in society, develop professional skills, and engage in community-focused engineering design experiences, all aimed at helping them see themselves as engineers.
Our students explore the impact of engineering on society, build professional skills that will serve them well in their future careers, and engage in hands-on design experiences that focus on addressing real-world problems in their communities. These experiences are designed to help our students see themselves as engineers and to give them the confidence and skills they need to succeed in this exciting and rewarding field.
At e4usa, we believe that engineering has the power to shape a better future for us all. By breaking down barriers and empowering a new generation of engineers, we are creating a more diverse and inclusive industry that will lead to breakthrough innovations and solve some of the world’s most pressing problems. Join us in this journey and discover the power of engineering for yourself.
