Helping Girls See the Path to Engineering

Engineering is largely seen as a male-dominated career field. A terrific post on Robomatter has made clear that engineering is a great career choice for all students, regardless of gender.

Why? Robomatter offers 10 compelling reasons to today’s young girls, including:

  • It’s fun
  • It’s not just for boys
  • There are great scholarship opportunities
  • You’ll create cool stuff
  • You’ll bring a new perspective to projects and assignments
  • You’ll never be bored
  • You’ll learn skills that you can use in almost any field
  • You’ll have flexibility in your career
  • You can make a difference in the world
  • Engineers have great job prospects

 

The reasoning for each is spot on, and serves as a valuable primer for today’s educators and parents looking to inspire young learners into the engineering field.
