My objective in writing Engineering Stories is to encourage students to consider or continue careers in science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM), show what it may be like, dispel a myth or two, and encourage creativity, problem solving, and the confidence to make the world a better place. It is also my hope that teachers will take an interest in using these stories to increase their own understanding of engineering and thus be better able to convey it to students.
As an engineer, I use feedback in determining if a mechanical system is on course; I need the same kind of feedback here. Please reply and let me know the following:
- What Engineering Stories did you read?
- What did you experience while your read them?
- Did the story make you more interested in engineering?
- How could the stories be improved to achieve the goal?
Thanks for enjoying Engineering Stories.
