K-12

The global race to produce technologically savvy graduates is on! America is no exception, but we are losing our edge. Innovation has been the key to the rise of every great civilization. Applied math and science are the foundation of all technological learning. Our goals are to encourage visibility of the engineering profession in the classroom, increase the number of students entering the engineering field, provide resources to help educators teach engineering at all levels, and to make it fun!

Visit the K-12 Website to learn more about Engineering for Students.

Shrimp Boil

This seafood dish is a combination of shrimp, sausage, corn, and potatoes cook with various spices. The Annual Shrimp Boil Event has roots dating back to some 40 years and thanks to FES’s members, the legacy of this event lives on. “Great family fun, delicious food, my kids had a blast, awesome live music” – just some of the feedback constantly received for this event.

Legislative Breakfast

The Legislative Breakfast provides a chance to meet our local legislators, share opinions, receive information on the latest legislative issues concerning design professionals, and learn what’s in store for the upcoming Florida Legislative Session.

FES promotes and defends the professional interests of all engineers in the state of Florida. To do so, we maintain a strong and effective voice with the legislature.
