Could Your Child Become an Engineer?


Parenting Thoughts

Yes! Engineering can be one of your child’s talents. Are you surprised? Do you think of him or her as interested in music or cooking or sports – not something like engineering? Here is why engineering is definitely one of his or her talents.
Engineering is something we do, not just the name of a certain job or career. Engineering is a way of thinking that applies to all activities and careers.
Even if your children are playing the guitar, cooking an omelet, or playing baseball, they can be doing engineering if they are problem solving and using mathematics.
That is what is at the heart of engineering. Musicians engineer their musical arrangements. Cooks engineer their recipes. And, an athlete engineers a game plan and his or her body’s performance.
