STEM Education Resource Center: Engineering Resources
Herbert Hoover said this about the engineering profession: "There is the satisfaction of watching a figment of the imagination emerge through the aid of science to a plan on paper. Then it moves to realisation in stone or metal or energy. Then it brings homes to men or women. Then it elevates the standard of living and adds to the comforts of life. This is the engineer's high privilege." Content from public broadcasting like e² and DESIGN SQUAD can help students practice the multiple disciplines that engineers must master and help them envision the steps they need to take to join this profession.
