Our Unique Approach

Gain Engineering Experience

 

EFTW is an introduction to the world of engineering. Learners will build a working tech prototype and explore key engineering concepts that they can carry forward in their lives.

Engage in Sprints

 

During EFTW, learners will use a common engineering process called ‘sprints.’ Sprints break their work into smaller phases, which allows them to make gradual improvements from concept to completion.

Connect with Facebook Engineers

 

Engineers at Facebook come from many different backgrounds. EFTW is a unique opportunity for learners to engage with them through calls and ask them questions about their journeys.

Create Projects with Purpose

 

In collaboration with a team, learners work on developing engineering solutions to issues that truly matter to them. Issues can range from online bullying to mental health reform.

Phases

EFTW guides learners through 3 phases: Prep Phase, Sprint Phase, and Finish Phase. Check out the videos to learn more!
