Adventures in Engineering is a not-for-profit educational organization headquartered in Tampa, FL.

We provide a K-12 introduction to Engineering via summer camps, school programs, and online distributed content.

Our Mission is to introduce young students to Engineering concepts, applications, and career paths in an exciting and accessible way.

Our Vision is for every child to understand and experience the field of Engineering before entering college.

The concept is a simple one… the more students who learn about Engineering now, the more who will develop a passion for it and want to learn more in college. This means more Engineering college graduates, who will become the leaders, developers, and innovators of our future.

According to the U.S. Department of Education (www.ed.gov/stem), today only 16 percent of American high school seniors are proficient in mathematics and interested in a STEM career. This is a tragedy for the United States, its children, and its future. Programs like those developed by Adventures in Engineering will help to improve this statistic. The earlier you get a child interested in STEM, the more confident they become in their abilities, and the more they will open their mind to outside-the-box thinking and innovation.

“… Leadership tomorrow depends on how we educate our students today—especially in science, technology, engineering and math.”
— President Barack Obama, September 16, 2010
