  • Youth Outreach and STEM Education

    Welcome! The ASCE Philadelphia YMF K-12 Outreach team partners up with locals schools, educators, and organizations in the greater Philadelphia area to facilitate student learning about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields including Civil Engineering. Our goal is to create opportunities by providing resources for curriculum support and hands-on learning. With each event and student we work with, we hope to broaden their minds with new career possibilities, sharpen problem solving skills, and encourage teamwork.

    Some of the schools and organizations we have partnered with in the past are listed below:

    • • John H Taggart School
    • • J.R. Masterman School
    • • Samuel Fels High School
    • • Potter Thomas Elementary School
    • • Plymouth Whitemarsh High School
    • • Hillcrest Elementary School
    • • Girls Inc.
    Many of our programs and classroom visits take place throughout the school year and are implemented by our numerous member volunteers. The planned presentations and projects are catered to each classroom and age range of students. Past activities have included (but are not limited to) panel Q&A sessions, slideshow presentations on topics such as "What is a Civil Engineer?", road design computer programs, reinforced earth wall activities, Career Day representatives, and many more! We are more than happy to work with local schools and educators to personalize the in-person or virtual event to meet your learning objectives.

    We are always looking for more volunteers to get involved and for new schools or organizations to partner with.
    If interested in volunteering or having ASCE join an event please email us at ASCEPhilaYMFK12@gmail.com!
