Engineering challenges help youth understand what engineering is and how it is relevant to their lives. Connecting these experiences to their lives and to the work engineers do helps young people see themselves as problem solvers and someone who can do engineering.
Youth look to you as an example of what they should do and how they should look at the world. Do you use the engineering practices and share your thought processes and reflections? Not sure how? Learn ways to model the engineering processes in your daily work.
