This is an awesome video which targets girls beyond the old-fashion practice of playing dolls, stuffed animals, and pink stuff. I know this all too well, when my daughters were not allowed to select the erector set or building blocks at the company party, but could only choose from the designated dolls and stuffed animals. Fortunately for my sisters and me, our parents let us play with Legos, Lincoln Logs, and take things apart. Being aware of what we allow the next generation to even play with sends a message of what they can be!
Look what using your math & science skills and thinking of a solution to a problem can do . . . . Kudos to this 11-year old boy!
A FREE Hands-on Workshop for K-12 Teachers and Engineers is planned for Saturday, November 16th at the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center from 9:00 AM - Noon.
This event will familiarize educators with the engineering design process, provide them with hand-on project to use in their classroom, and connect them with local engineers for potential future partnership and news. Other resources will be given to them to use to their class of students, thus increasing the outreach in multitude.
Registration is required due to limited space availability. See attachment for more details and contact info.
Great K-12 programs - and some impressive data on their impact - were highlighted at this Capitol Hill briefing last week. Story in ASME's Capitol Update: https://www.asme.org/about-asme/get-involved/advocacy-government-relations/policy-publications/capitol-update/june-17-2013-capitol-update#1
Engineering Ambassadors is a student professional development program with an outreach mission that is showing good outcomes for both university and pre-college audiences - in engagement, diversity, and communications skills. It was started at Penn State, and is now being piloted in more than a dozen universities, with NSF, corporate - and ASME - support for a broader Network of such programs. For any in Atlanta at the upcoming ASEE conference, I recommend this Tuesday poster session and the panel following:T448·Liberal Education/Engineering & Society (LEES) Poster SessionPoster· Liberal Education/Engineering & Society DivisionTue.
