Customized Engineering Career Books

ITAEIY4_300x450This Fall, you can get copies of Is There an Engineer Inside You?, the leading book on engineering and engineering technology career information, with your logo on the front and back covers for up to 70% off the retail price and support a good cause at the same time.

We only offer this discount in August to take advantage of volume pricing.

If you have you been trying to introduce more students to engineering or trying to recruit more students into your program, this is a great opportunity for you to save time and money.

The fourth year of the 100,000 Book Give-Away Program is on the horizon. The goal of the program is to give away 100,000 books to students, teachers, and school counselors over a five year period.

Advantages of being an outreach partner:

  • Each partner will receive 300+ books with their logo on the front and back covers.
  • Each partner will receive a customized pdf copy for their website.
  • Books are only $7.35 each! That’s over 70% off! There is no other cost saving opportunity like this and it’s only offered once a year.
  • Each partner’s website will be included on the cover page of the website edition and in the acknowledgements of the print edition.
  • After the initial printing, partners can purchase additional books (no logo) for only $5 each.
  • Piggyback on a National Media Campaign and gain greater exposure for your program(s).

This year, as part of the Book Give-Away Program, a 5th Edition will be released! Right now, the book covers 41 types of engineering. The 5th edition will cover 45 types and also include expanded sections on women and minorities in engineering.

By partnering with Universities and organizations who want to promote engineering careers and motivate students to pursue engineering, to date, we have given away close to 50,000 copies! Books have been donated to schools, libraries, guidance counselors and teachers; distributed at engineering competitions, events, conferences and workshops; and are available as downloads from some partner websites.

Is There an Engineer Inside You? can reinforce your message by building on the information you share about what engineers, technologists and technicians do, helping explain the differences between engineering and engineering technology, and showing that engineering and engineering technology are degree paths that can lead to fulfilling careers.

For the first time, you can also now order smaller quantities of Is There an Engineer Inside You? with your logo on the front and backs covers at a discount by joining in the printing in August.

Early Bird Bonus – This renewal offer is coming early to help me manage the program. With 300+ requests for free books last year, I was overwhelmed. To give you an incentive to help, if you renew or join by June 5, you will receive an extra 10 books at no additional cost!

We only have two years left and 50,000 books to go! Become a partner today and by working together, we can ensure that every K-12 student has this valuable resource with your branding front and center. It’s a win-win.

100K Book Give-Away Round 2

ITAEIY4_300x450Last year, I joined forces with nine amazing Universities and organizations who wanted to promote engineering careers and motivate students to pursue engineering. Together, we gave away close to 8,000 copies of Is There an Engineer Inside You?, the leading book on engineering careers. 6,000 copies of the book were distributed across the nation and another 2000 were downloaded from partner websites. Student competitions and events that received books were BEST (Boosting Engineering Science and Technology), Seaperch, Ability One and the USA Science and Engineering Festival. Books were also donated to teachers and distributed at professional development workshops and conferences. Partners donated books to teachers, schools, guidance counselors and students in their local communities.

As we enter year two of the give-away, I hope to reach even more students and teachers by expanding the program and improving the book. Here’s how:

  1. Encouraging Partner Success – This year partners will be able to choose events in their community for book distribution. This can be a student or educator event. Up to 300 books can be requested. In addition, these books can have their logo on the front and/or back cover(s)! See samples.
  2. Expanding the Program – Last year, we gave away books to students at national student competitions. This year we will expand the recipients to educators and mentors who promote STEM and can disseminate the information to reach an even larger audience.  In addition to the books distributed in partner communities, I will also distribute to several key competitions and conferences.
  3. Improving the Book – I have written three new sections. Instead of covering 38 types of engineering and engineering technology, it now covers 41 types. New additions include: Industrial Engineering Technology, Fire Protection Engineering, and Fire Protection Engineering Technology.
  4. Each partner’s logo and website will be included on the cover page and in the acknowledgements.

The 100K Book Give-Away is an amazing program designed to help you easily expand your outreach, save money, save time, and provide a proven reference to students, parents, educators, counselors and mentors in your community. Deadline to become a partner is August 8, 2014.

100,000 Book Give Away!

ITAEIY4_300x450It’s my dream to see my first book, Is There an Engineer Inside You?: A Comprehensive Guide to Career Decisions in Engineering in the hands of every student that could benefit so I’ve decided that over the next 5 years, I’m going to give away 100,000 or more copies of the Fourth Edition to all students that want to study engineering or engineering technology! This will include both printed and downloadable copies.

I’ve poured my heart and soul into writing this book. It’s my best selling publication. And yes, I want to give it away. What could be better than knowing it is helping so many students make an informed decision?

Do you want to be a part of this? I need sponsors to help me with the production costs and events that are willing to allow me to give each student a book at their national competition.

The advantages for sponsoring include ad space, free books and a custom downloadable copy for your website visitors.

The books will be given away books at competitions such as the USA Science and Engineering Festival, FIRST Robotics, Mathcounts, Future City, BEST Robotics, Bridge Building Competition, Design Squad, Solar Car Challenge, ToyChallenge, Seaperch and/or any other national competition that throws its name into my hat if I can find a way to pay for it.

I’m already 1/4 of the way there in making this happen for the 2013-2014 school year. Please help me reach my goal of giving away 100,000 books! If you are reading this blog, I know you care about engineering education. Reach out to those that you know will help! We can do amazing things by working together.

I can’t think of anything more worthy than celebrating each student’s desire to enroll in engineering or engineering technology school.

More information on being a sponsor or if you are a competition that would like to give away books to our future engineers.
