Discover Engineering

The K-12 STEM Center develops strategies and builds initiatives to meet the needs of a diverse population, specifically in efforts to increase the representation of female students and African American/Black, Hispanic/LatinX/Latine, Native/Indigenous students in its STEM programs, such as Discover Engineering. Some of those efforts include outreach, mentorship, and scholarships. However, all STEM Center programs are open to all students in compliance with Federal and State law, as well as University policy.

Discover Engineering  is a 4-week, 3-unit college course in which high school students work in groups to complete projects that explore different fields of engineering. Students can choose to live in the USC dorms or commute.
