AIChE K-12

AIChE K-12 leverages the Institute’s vast network of volunteers for enhanced and expanded local impact in K-12 Outreach. Our objective is to increase interest, awareness, and excitement for science and engineering in K-12 students and prepare future engineering students and professionals to creatively solve technical challenges in an ethical, environmentally responsible, and socially conscious way.

Imagine what all of us can do.

The Doing a World of Good Campaign is one of the most ambitious fundraising programs in our history. AIChE expects to raise $15 million over five years that will be directed toward five transformative priorities. Learn more.

I have been involved in K-12 outreach for the past five years and have worked with students of all ages — from first graders to high school seniors. For me, outreach has been both personally and professionally rewarding. Through outreach, I have gained some valuable skills, which I think every engineer, especially young engineers, can benefit from.
