Work Together to Create Meaningful Experiences

Great things happen when passion and purpose come together. Engineer for the Week is dedicated to spotlighting projects that help to tackle social issues through our events and programming.

Opportunities

Continue Your Engineering Journey

Every participant who completes at least one project sprint will receive a signed EFTW Certificate of Completion from Facebook. Select teams whose projects are chosen by Facebook engineers will be invited to join us at Facebook HQ for the EFTW Achievement Summit, where teens will work on advancing their education and products.

Impact Award

Select projects that take an innovative approach to adding social value will receive the EFTW Impact Award, a cash prize that will be allocated by winning teams to a chosen non-profit.

Certificate of Completion

All completed projects are eligible to receive an EFTW Certificate of Completion from Facebook, officially recognizing you for your hard work.

Testimonials

Meet teens who have used our programs as a launching pad for their engineering journeys!

Creating Vizor projects was really fun and interesting. I loved how any of issues could be dealt with in the group chat efficiently and quickly.
