K-12 Outreach

Youth Outreach and STEM Education


ASCE Philadelphia YMF K-12 Outreach partners up with locals schools, educators, and organizations to enhance student knowledge and inspiration for civil engineering and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields. Our goal is to create opportunities and provide resources for curriculum support and hands-on learning throughout the Philadelphia region.

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 diverse and are targeted towards each classroom and the students. Past activities have included (but are not limited to) panel Q&A sessions, slideshow presentations on "What is a Civil Engineer?", road design computer programs, reinforced earth wall activities, and many more! For details and photos from many of our events, please check out our Outreach Blog.

We're always looking for volunteers to get involved and help with our various events, so if you're interested please reach out to us with any questions! Otherwise, thanks for viewing this page and please enjoy some photos from some of our recent K-12 Outreach events below:
