Mission is dedicated to providing educational resources, inspiration, and guidance that empowers educators, counselors, and their students around the world, fostering the next generation of technology innovators.


To be an indispensable resource for educators, parents, and students by providing tools to foster interest in engineering and technology careers and nurture the next generation of innovators.

TryEngineering History & IEEE
Launched in 2006 as a collaboration of IEEE, IBM, and the New York Hall of Science, offers a variety of resources that will advance the skill and knowledge of educators who intend to bring engineering education into their classrooms and to engage and excite students about engineering and technology careers. IEEE is the world’s largest technical professional association for the advancement of technology. IEEE has more than 420,000 members globally in the engineering and computing professions.
A Commitment to STEM & Pre-University Education
IEEE recognizes the need for students to develop their capabilities in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education in order to succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society and to pursue STEM-related careers. IEEE, through, is committed to raising interest and awareness in engineering, computing, and technology, and strives to help students discover the engineer within them. Engineering is an exciting and rewarding profession, and we invite educators to explore the resources available on TryEngineering and to integrate them into your classrooms to excite and enthuse your students about this rich and impactful discipline.
For Educators connects educators to more than 130 free hands-on, low-cost, engineering lesson plans. Each lesson plan targets specific age ranges and aligns with education standards to allow teachers and students to apply engineering principles in the classroom. Educators have access to all of the resources they need to teach engineering and the tips and tricks to keep their students engaged.
For Students introduces students to the wonders of engineering through online engineering games and apps, that are educational, interactive and fun! Students can also explore ways to get involved in engineering activities, such as camps, competitions, research opportunities, internships, and scholarships. And students can learn about the different engineering fields as well as what engineers do from first-hand profiles featuring a variety of practicing engineers.
Accreditation & the University Finder
Students considering a career in engineering, engineering technology or computing are encouraged to select a university program that has been accredited. Accreditation generally means that a recognized accrediting the engineering program against a set of agreed upon criteria and has determined it meets a set standard. Accreditation differs country by country, but there are efforts made by accrediting bodies through mutual recognition agreements to provide a level of consistency that ensures programs in these countries have met common academic requirements for entry to the practice of engineering.’s University Finder lists programs that have been accredited by a recognized accrediting body at more than 3300 colleges and universities in more than 80 countries.
