Good afternoon. I hope you all have enjoyed Engineers Week. I’ve seen lots of sharing on social media. Thanks to everyone who participated.
In an effort to promote engineering and Engineers Week, I spoke to fourth graders in the Oasis Program (advanced gifted and talented students) at Riverbank ElementarySchool this week. I was happy to hear three of the students already were interested in engineering. I went over the different disciplines of engineering, how important engineers are to society, and spoke about what ACEC-SC and SCSPE do to advocate, educate, and communicate for the Engineering Community. Students then watched ASCE’s movie Dream Big. I hope exposing them to engineering at an early age will motivate them to stay in STEM programs.
