It’s a window on a new destination—where children and young teens encounter engineering in a brand new way.

Through My Window is a multimedia educational website that grabs you by the hand and pulls you into a world filled with stories, mysteries, explorations, and adventures.  It’s a place where engineering isn’t about building bridges—it’s about asking questions, thinking deeply, and building a community of learners.  It’s where engineering becomes something you can do.
