About us

K-12 outreach

In addition to having you come to campus, representatives from our American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Student Chapter can come to you!

Many of our students are active in community activities outside the UW and will gladly assist in engineering and science related projects to promote their discipline. They regularly visit elementary schools, middle schools and after-school programs to help with science fairs, career nights and other activities to encourage young students to reach for the sky.

If you are interested in having someone visit your class, or if you are planning to bring a group to the UW campus, please contact us at to inquire about outreach arrangements.

College of Engineering discovery days

The College of Engineering Discovery Days is held in the spring of each year. Our faculty, staff, and students enthusiastically introduce K-12 students to the world of engineering through exciting hands-on experiments and visual displays. See the College of Engineering's Discovery Days page for more details.

Engineering ambassadors

Engineering Ambassadors (EAs) are students across the College of Engineering who bring the world of STEM and engineering to K-14 classrooms through presentations and interactive activities. Learn more and invite the EAs to your classroom!
