ASME’s K-12 STEM Education program initiatives aim to celebrate, engage and empower K-12 students and educators to explore engineering with confidence. By fostering a better prepared and more diverse pipeline of K-12 students who are informed and energized to pursue engineering as a career, we strive to engage, excite, and illuminate pathways for future STEM champions to shine and succeed.
