Volunteers & Educators

DiscoverE is building a robust center for volunteers and educators. Whether you are looking to become a more confident volunteer, want help presenting engineering careers to students, or are interested in learning effective ways to talk to kids about engineering, we’re here to help.

We have created a library of workshops you can use as self-guided tutorials or as presentations to others. Each is made up of downloadable Powerpoints, frequently asked questions, additional information in ready-to-print PDFs, and more. If you don’t see what you need or have a workshop idea, please email us at info@discovere.org.
