The Infinity Project was developed in 1999 by Southern Methodist University's Lyle School of Engineering and Texas Instruments - working in partnership with the U.S. Department of Education, the National Science Foundation, and a team of university faculty, teachers, working engineers and leading researchers.
The program was created to help close the gap between the number of engineering graduates we currently produce in the United States, and the large need for high-quality engineering graduates in the near future. For our next generation of college graduates to be competitive in the global world of technology, we took steps to encourage more young students to pursue engineering.
The Infinity Project provided cutting-edge curriculum, instructional materials, hands-on design projects, low-cost high impact classroom technology, and professional development for educators. Since its inception, The Infinity Project has trained over a thousand instructors - better preparing them to engage students in the fun and excitement of engineering. The program is currently being used in hundreds of middle schools, high schools, and colleges, and has impacted thousands of students.
The Infinity Project is a non-profit organization with a 501(c)(3) tax exempt status.
The Infinity Project is a key part of the Caruth Institute for Engineering Education in the Bobby B. Lyle School of Engineering at Southern Methodist University.
