Our specific purpose is to benefit the public by providing funding for educational and charitable activities aimed towards engineering education and to encourage students to go into the engineering profession.

Major Activities

- We are fully involved in Mathcounts, a nationwide program designed to increase students' interest and ability in mathematics and to heighten awareness of the importance of math.

- We provide the funding for each NeSPE chapter and state Mathcounts contests held each February and March.

- We also contribute to the funds for participation in the national competition in Washington D.C., in May every year.
