Scaling Up the “E” in STEM

Engineer Your World (EYW) at The University of Texas at Austin is proud to partner with The University of Iowa to bring Iowa high schools an innovative engineering program founded on the belief that all students can benefit from learning to solve problems like an engineer, regardless of their career aspirations. Our innovative, student-centered curriculum engages learners in collaborative, student-directed projects that build creative problem-solving and engineering design skills; teach the value of collaborating to solve complex, modern problems; and create a strong foundation for future STEM learning.
