Our program is flexible and can fit the needs of most any venue or class size. We can present our "I Can Be An Engineer" program to a small group of children in a classroom setting, to a very large group in a gymnasium, and anything in between.
Many young children haven't even heard the word "engineer" or know that they can be an engineer. The goal of the program is to introduce, inform, and excite young children about engineering. The program is generally 30 minutes and consists of reading a book from the I Can Be An Engineer book series. Then we have a lively interactive discussion about the wonderful things engineers can do and what it's like to be an engineer. The discussion includes topics about some of the things the children are doing now in their everyday life and play are just like engineers. The program concludes with the students reciting a poem about engineering from the book.
We frequently get feedback from teacher and parents that their student or child was so excited to learn about engineering after hearing our program. Many of the children announce that they are going to be an engineer!
Surveys administered to the participating students before and after the program revealed an increase of overall students wanting to become an engineer by 25%. The increase in girls was over 35%!
Since 2016, Elementary School children in different venues across Indiana, Georgia, and Chicago have witnessed our "I Can Be An Engineer" program. Many schools have asked us to return over and over again.
