Welcome Teachers, Parents, & Students!

This web site is being provided by the Puget Sound Engineering Council (PSEC) and its member societies.

Below are direct links to several local engineering educational activities, and some related national engineering sites for additional educational information (e.g. ideas for Science Fair displays, descriptions of what various types of engineers do, and National Engineers Week related information).

Also provided are links to the local engineering societies that make up PSEC, with a contact name for a Mentor Coordinator, Outreach Coordinator, College Relations Chair, Education Chair, Student Liason, Information Chair, President, or other related title depending on the specific engineering society – to help schools directly with related requests (e.g. getting a specific type of engineer as a volunteer Mentor for a design team).

PSEC also has a Career Day Speaker program that provides engineer speakers to high schools and middle schools – usually as part of a Career Day event, coordinated by the school.

We encourage teachers to contact the engineering education event contact directly, or the engineering society that matches your requirement best. Or send a general inquiry to the PSEC President at president {at} pseconline <dot> org or the Career Day Speakers Coordinator, Gary Foss, at outreach <at> pseconline {dot} org.

Other Engineering Resources

If you are a teacher looking for an engineer speaker, please contact us at You might also be interested in the presentations that some of our member societies have prepared and made available on our What is Engineering? section.

You can also take advantage of our “Ask An Engineer” program. We have some typical questions there.

If you are an engineer who is interested in making yourself available for the speaker program, send an e-mail note to outreach <at> pseconline {dot} org.
