We know something about outreach

Almost 20 years ago, the Start Engineering team created Engineering, Go for It!, the first engineering outreach publication designed to make engineering accessible and exciting to K-12 audiences. Then we built a franchise around engineering outreach that reached over a million students and teachers through a magazine, a website, meetings and workshops, and partnerships with industry, government, and non-profits.

Now we’re building on this legacy. As always, our career guide shows middle-school and high-school students how they can make the world a better place through a career in engineering.

The 3rd edition will be the best yet:

  • Brand new! A FREE PDF workbook to help students identify the field of engineering that’s right for them.
    Free with custom orders, for sale online to all others.

  • Updated data on degrees, schools, and salaries.

  • Tips and strategies for getting in, paying for, and excelling in the engineering program that’s right for each student.

We’ll cover innovations and new technologies in areas like these:

  • Cybersecurity

  • Bioengineering

  • Environmental issues

  • Energy

  • Space exploration

  • Robotics

… and many more.

The Start Engineering Career Guide can help you show the students you’re trying to reach how engineering at your school can be the right choice for them.
