Engineering Academies for K-12 Students
The Marquette University College of Engineering Outreach Program offers a wide variety of interesting and challenging programs for students of all ages, including the iHeels program. Our courses are designed to challenge our youth to become critical-thinking problem solvers, appreciate STEM, and explore the engineering design process. Since 2006, the Outreach team continues to develop and offer unique opportunities for students to have fun while solving real-world engineering problems.
Visit the Engineering Academies website for more information about all our engineering programs for K-12 students.

FIRST Robotics is a national engineering contest that encourages engineering, science and technology and promotes “gracious professionalism.” FRC combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. Under strict rules, limited resources, and time limits, teams of 25 students or more are challenged to raise funds, design a team "brand", hone teamwork skills and build and program robots to perform a prescribed task. Its as close to "real world engineering" as a student can get.
The College of Engineering has formed a partnership with Wauwatosa STEM school over the past two years. The k-5 school's mission is to provide an innovative and dynamic learning environment with a curriculum rooting in STEM education.

Rube Goldberg Machine Contest
The Rube Goldberg Machine Contest™© is named after Pulitzer Prize-winning artist Rube Goldberg, whose inventions satirized new technologies. Students of all ages are participating in engineering, transforming everyday material into their own wacky and innovative machines. The contest allows your wild and ingenious inventions to be shown and provides a learning experience in engineering. Learn more about the Wisconsin contest.
