Engineering for Success, Inc. (E4S) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides high schools with supplemental resources to strengthen and sustain their STEM-focused pathways. E4S facilitates opportunities for high-school students to make real-world connections between their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) coursework and the world around them.
E4S primarily works with under-resourced high schools wanting to increase the impact of their STEM education pathways by facilitating and identifying resources for students to develop their interests in engineering. We facilitate workshops, field trips, and partnerships with collegiate and industry professionals to bridge the gap between students’ STEM coursework and pursuant career fields.
The mission of Engineering for Success (E4S) is to bridge the gap between STEM Concepts and STEM Careers.
Engineering for Success (E4S) envisions thriving communities anchored by local schools with successful STEM programs through which students pursuing degrees and careers in STEM disciplines is a commonplace.
E4S strives to accomplish the following objectives:
Foster opportunities for students to used engineering to discover innovative ways to improve the quality of life in their local communities and around the world.
Bridge the diversity gap in STEM industries.
Promote awareness and curiosity in STEM fields for students’ local communities at large.
An Atlanta native, Aimee graduated from Frederick Douglass High School and went on to complete her Bachelors of Science degree in Civil Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology in 2014. Since graduating, Aimee works as a transportation engineer in metro Atlanta.
As an advocate for community engagement and service, Aimee noticed a missing link between high school students in under-resourced schools who excelled in STEM courses and their matriculation into college & university’s STEM programs. With the founding of E4S (Engineering for Success), Aimee seeks to bridge the gap between students interest in STEM courses and their desire to pursue degrees and careers in those fields.
