NSPE's and the Nevada Society's reputable standing within the engineering community and the nation is strengthened by its partnerships with organizations that have like-minded missions and activities.
The Nevada PE Foundation both "inspires the next generation of socially and environmentally responsible leaders" and "supports science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education." Outreach to K-6 is a new area, recently undertaken by the Foundation. It is based on Trustees' observations that there is both inadequate contact with engineering professionals in the lower grades (K-6) and also insufficient resources in the public schools’ lower grades to provide hands-on activities in engineering design and testing. It is the intent of the Nevada PE foundation, through its outreach activities, to address these deficits in the primary grades for schools in Nevada.
