High School Students

Engineering is everywhere!

From the text messages you send to the clothes you wear to the food you eat, engineering affects every part of your life, every day.

Engineering is about more than designing cool gadgets, though. Engineers and scientists are working to find cures for diseases, design buildings, and protect the environment.

Get WISE. Become an engineer!
