NSPE sent a letter to Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and Congressman Paul Tonko (D-NY-21) in support of the Engineering Education for Innovation Act, which will be introduced in the coming weeks. The E2 for Innovation Act would provide grants to integrate engineering curricula and content into classrooms across the country. The bill's goals of increasing student achievement and interest in engineering, broadening the diversity of students participating in engineering, and developing a workforce prepared to teach engineering are critical to cultivating the next generation of engineers.
