DiscoverE

We are the E in STEM®

DiscoverE works to ensure people everywhere understand how engineers, technicians, and technologists make the world a better place. 30 years ago we were the first to call on the engineering community to volunteer in their local schools and help young students discover engineering. Now we lead a growing volunteer and educator movement recognized worldwide. Help celebrate our legacy and build for the future.
