One of the best parts of being an engineer for me is taking time to speak with young kids about creating a future with math, science and engineering. Letting them know all the different fields that are available for exploring a career in engineering. The bigger point of the presentation was regarding math in general. It doesn't matter what career a person chooses in life, or how many, math will always be part of our everyday life. The trick to demonstrating that point is giving examples that hit home runs in their minds. Let me tell you this, when you see the 'click' moment in their eyes on this topic it makes everything you have ever done worth it.
Special thank you goes out to the two 5th grade classes my presentation was given to last weekend. It truly made my day. I can only imagine what inspiring ideas will come from these 60 students in the future. They were all amazing rock star engineers in my book!
