100 Awesome Engineering Projects for Kids
Engineering and fun aren’t always two things that kids naturally associate with one another, but there are hundreds of ways to make engineering, physics and design fun and challenging for kids. Here are 100 great experiments that will let kids construct, play, learn and grow, all while they study the fundamentals of engineering.

Aspire SWE K-12 Outreach
Engineering is . . . it’s invention . . . it’s one of the most exciting and essential fields there is. In order to help engineering thrive and remain diverse, we need to share the excitement with girls in grades K-12. Education and awareness must start now, well before college. The future is in our hands. Help us place it in theirs.  The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) strives to diversify the field of engineering by encouraging girls in grades K-12 to capture the spirit of innovation and open their eyes and minds to a rewarding multi-faceted profession.

Build it & Bust It
Here you are. Welcome! This is a site about engineering.  Perhaps we should say this is a site FOR engineering. The point is, you won’t be spoon-feed dull information. Here, you will design and test your own structures and share what you learn with others. You can view everyone’s design and learn from each other. We encourage you to communicate in the hopes that you will teach each other. We don’t want to be the engineer or architect who you tells you what to build. We just want to be the guys down at the hardware store who suggests the tools and supplies.

Discover Engineering:
An exciting collection of activities and videos prepared by the National Engineers Week Foundation.

Gallery of Women Engineers!
A collection of profiles of women engineers.  Women engineers work every day to solve problems and make the world a better, cleaner, safer place.  These women are also actively involved in their communities, raising families, and enjoying all kinds of sports and hobbies.

Engineering Go For It: Dream up the future:
eGFI is for everyone! From the interactive website to the colorful and inspiring print and digital magazine, there is something for everyone–students, K-12 teachers and informal educators, parents and guardians, and anyone else with an interest in engineering.  eGFI is proudly brought to you by the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE). We are committed to promoting and enhancing efforts to improve K-12 STEM and engineering education.

Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day celebrates its 10th Anniversary on February 24, 2011.  For the past ten years, women engineers have introduced more than one million girls and young women to engineering. More than just one day, Introduce a Girl to Engineering is a national movement that shows girls how creative and collaborative engineering is and how engineers are changing our world.

Engineering your life:
A guide to engineering for high school girls.

Engineer Girl:
Turn imagination into reality with a future in engineering.   Activities and information for middle school girls.

Resources for teachers, parents, and engineers to help guide our future civil engineers.
These online educational sites provide  lesson plans, educator guides and hands-on engineering activities. Full-color activity guides are also available from ASCE.

A Sightseer’s Guide to Engineering
This site, brought to you by NSPE and Engineers Week, has been recently updated and includes a sampling of activities, creative marvels, and thrills from around the country that help tell the engineering story. Take a look: Engineers turn ideas into reality!

Engineers: Turning Ideas into Reality.
American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) site for Kids, Parents, and Teachers to celebrate the 60th anniversary (1951 – 2011) of Engineers Week.

ZOOM into Engineering:
How do you get kids excited about engineering? Give them the opportunity to try ZOOM’s fun, kid-friendly activities with real engineers! A joint project of ZOOM and National Engineers Week, ZOOM has created materials for engineers to use with kids in classrooms, after-school programs, libraries, and even malls!
