Engineering Speaks

Engineering Speaks connects Columbia Engineering students and researchers with K-12 students in New York City. Engineers visit NYC classrooms to lead students in a hands-on and engaging lesson and demonstration. 

After the session, students will be able to envision themselves as engineers and scientists. The programs will shed a light on how engineering is part of our everyday lives and how students can make an impact in the world through engineering. Overall, our sessions are designed to show students that engineering and science are fun and exciting.

 If you are a Columbia Engineering educator (faculty, post-doc, PhD student), and are interested in being matched with a local school to lead a fun and engaging STEM lesson of your choosing. For the 2023-2024 school year, participants can opt for an in-person learning experience or a virtual learning experience.
