About Us

"Example is Leadership" -Albert Schweitzer

Everything begins as an idea. Inspiring Future Engineers began as an initiative to inspire Elementary and Middle School students to engage in STEM and discover the fun of engineering - however, we won't stop here. Through summer programs, saturday workshops, and after school programs, we are endlessly focusing on our commitment to provide an outlet for STEM expression and innovation for children. 

Isabel Hall

Environmental Engineering. B.S. (2019)

Founder & Program Director


In a Nutshell

I am currently a graduate in Environmental Engineering from the University at Buffalo. My passion to create positive change is evident through my work with Inspiring Future Engineers, and several other facades of my career. My work at the University at Buffalo, aside from being a committed student, includes my involvement in several different clubs and departments. I am the student assistant for a region-wide, semester-long initiative known as the Lake Erie Hack, a challenging project that brings together community experts to solve water-related issues. In addition, I am performing research alongside environmental engineering faculty that involves empowering girls and young women in low-resource countries through sustainable sanitation methods. My passion for engineering solutions to improve education and quality of life in developing countries is also evident in my participation with the University at Buffalo’s Engineers without Borders Chapter. My all-encompassing contribution to sustainability at the University at Buffalo led to my nomination in the Class of 2017 and 2018 Education and Leadership Fellows in Sustainability, a project management program that works in collaboration with the UB Sustainability Office. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family and finding new ways to empower and inspire those around me. 


My favorite quote is, "We rise by lifting others." As an environmental engineer, I plan to use my creative capacity to initiate positive change in Western New York and inspire my peers to explore how they can also create unique change. Empowering others to harness what makes them unique and different unleashes limitless potential to change the world!
