TryEngineering Summer Institute

An exciting ten day, on-campus engineering camp for high school students held at three premier universities across the United States in 2019.


STEM Outreach: TryEngineering Lesson Plan Toolkit

Join us for this complimentary IEEE TryEngineering virtual event entitled, “STEM Outreach: TryEngineering Lesson Plan Toolkit” presented by Lorena Garcia and Lynn Bowlby.

TryEngineering.org makes it easy to teach engineering concepts by providing access to more than 130 complete, low-cost, easy-to-implement lesson plans that give you everything you need to help
pre-university teachers and students apply a variety of engineering principles in the classroom. 

The Lesson Plan Toolkit was developed as a “self-contained, how-to” kit to assist volunteers in conducting STEM outreach for teachers and/or students either in-person or virtually.

This webinar will include:

  • Lesson Plan Toolkit Overview
  • Live Q&A
