Project in a Box

UC San Diego’s Premier Engineering Project Development Organization

We make projects that impact student engineering education. Our mission is to provide hands-on projects for students and empower them with skills to thrive in a globally competitive workforce. Join us today to begin your project-building experience.

Our Outreach Project Kits

Currently, most of our collaborations are local to San Diego since most of our kits rely on in-house manufacturing and packing. We are open to sharing our project materials for educational purposes; please contact us if you are interested. These projects mainly target middle school and high school students, and typical kits take about three hours to complete from beginning to end with tutor assistance.
