For the past 20 years, Bechtel has partnered with the National Engineers Week Foundation on DiscoverE, a “teach in” in the United States that introduces primary and secondary school students to the exciting possibilities of a career in engineering. Stephen Bechtel Jr, the company's third-generation leader, helped create DiscoverE in 1990, while chairing Engineers Week. Bechtel has backed Engineers Week through financial support and very active employee involvement.
