Finding solutions

How do you prepare your students for jobs that don’t exist yet? Set your students up for a brilliant future by pushing them to solve problems creatively – right now. 

Finding solutions

How do you train an entire generation to be prepared for an unknown job market? We think the key is to give students solid transferable skills, one of the top ones being the ability to identify problems and find creative solutions.  

Each experience featured here has problem-solving at its core. Your students could spend an afternoon designing a new bridge or devising the safest method of transport for an egg! 

Engineers have a passion for making things work better. Unlock this passion in your students in a fun and engaging way with this collection, and prepare them for a bright future.
