Outreach

We host a wide range of programs to reach out to young people to encourage them to consider STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) majors and careers.

By sponsoring these outreach programs, you assist in increasing awareness of your company to young people and promoting interest in STEM. Your company will benefit as more students develop an interest in engineering and you create and build a pipeline of talent.

Depending on the focus areas of your company's products and services, one or more of the following programs may be a good fit:

  • ASM Materials Camp – for high school teachers in math, science, and technology to engage their students through simple, low-cost lab experiments
  • ECE Explorations – a seminar for Electrical and Computer Engineering sophomores
  • Engineering Advocates – a program in which College of Engineering students actively interact with elementary, middle, and high school students through hands-on activities
  • GAMES – an annual week-long camp for high school girls that enables them to explore engineering and science fields through demonstrations, presentations, hands-on activities, and interaction with women in technical fields
  • Ilinois First – 4 programs: Robotics Competition, Tech Challenge, LEGO League, and Junior LEGO League for ages 6 - 18
  • Worldwide Youth in Science and Engineering (WYSE) – Summer Camps and Programs for high school students with an interest in STEM
