If you could be an engineer… what would you do?


Engineers touch every aspect of our lives but frequently we do not recognise who they are or what they do. To inspire young people to become engineers we must first help them to understand what it is that engineers do, what inspires them and what it takes to become one. Engineering as a rich, stimulating and challenging context for learning in sciences, technologies and maths is the basis of Education Scotland’s STEM Central  <http://www.educationscotland.gov.uk/stemcentral/about/index.asp> resource.

Scottish Engineering and The Leaders Award <https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/glowblogs/eslb/2012/08/20/if-you-could-be-an-engineer-what-would-you-do/www.leadersaward.com>  for STEM are challenging learners to become Leaders for STEM in their schools by considering what they would do if they were an engineer.
