Started in 2018, EFTW is a free program that introduces engineering to K-12 learners historically underrepresented in STEM.

- Localized content: The entire program is now available in both English and Spanish.
- New Open Program model: Facilitators can join and complete the program with their learners at any time. They can submit a project on one of the three deadlines: May 31, 2022; September 30, 2022; and January 31, 2023.
- New project offering: Learners who do not have a computer or internet can now explore engineering through Products with Purpose.
- New Facilitator Portal: Educators now have a one-stop-shop to find everything they need to implement the program.
