Engineering was always a mystery to me.
I learned about math, science, and technology, but I never really understood how they could feed my desire to help people.
Thankfully, I was lucky enough to meet an engineering professor that introduced the opportunity to apply my favorite subject, math, in a way that benefits people.
I finally understood that engineering was a way to make a huge difference in the world and leave my mark.
Once engineering school wrapped up, and I was contributing in the way I always wanted to as an engineer in healthcare, I decided to volunteer at an elementary school to lead an after-school program.
I discovered a huge gap in what students thought engineering was. They lacked enthusiasm about math and science because they only understood how it applied in theory instead of it applied to what they saw in the world around them.
So, the journey began to create an elementary STEM curriculum to shows students what engineering is all about.
...To show that engineering is a global career.
...To teach concepts that are used by real engineers.
...To understand how much impact engineers can make on the world.
The goal has always been to inspire the next generation of engineers.
