What’s in it for me?

This question is probably something that most people wouldn’t admit that they ask themselves. But, let’s face it, everyone’s busy. There’s a lot demanded of us these days. Between work and family commitments we’ve all got a lot on our plates.

So, then WHY would someone add more to their plate? Why volunteer to do STEM outreach?

We reached out to our EIR Program volunteers to find out the underlying motivations that drive them to find the time.

The results might surprise you….

90% of them told us that they are motivate to participate because they see it as an opportunity for THEM connect to their profession in a unique way.

Of course they were also excited to connect with local students to help them understand what it means to be an engineer too!

In other words, it’s a great way to do something meaningful.

A lot of that other “stuff” on our plates just doesn’t fill that void.

Is STEM outreach something that you’ve considered doing? What are your motivations?
