Presentation to Utah Conference of Education Career Counselors

I was invited to speak to a group of K12 career counselors this week helping them see what it’s like to be an engineer, helping them understand how to explain engineering to their students. It was great. Since I write Engineering Stories, I decided weeks ago to memorize one of my stories, The Orbital Mechanic, and be prepared to recite or perform the story for these counselors. I enjoyed the experience. Storytelling is fun. (I would like to perform stories directly for youth.)

I also shared many career experiences and addressed many questions. If you’re interested, click on the link below for a sample of my slides. The first illustrations were used as backdrop for my recitation of, “The Orbital Mechanic.” If you haven’t read this story yet, may I encourage it. It’s a short 15 minute read and you just might learn something about space and spacecrafts you didn’t know before.
