Powerful Messages About Engineering

From DiscoverE Learning, there are five powerful messages to share with your kids - especially your girls - about engineering.  Studies from Engineer Your Life and Changing the Conversation have found that girls:

1. Don't know what engineering is;

2. Think engineers must be exceptional at both math and science; and,

3. Believe engineering is difficult and challenging.

These same projects also found that when we change how we talk about engineering, we can change what they think about engineering.

Whether you are a parent, teacher, counselor, or volunteer here are FIVE things to share about engineers and their work.

Curiosity—Engineers ask lots of questions that start with: Why? How? What if? 

Creativity—Engineering is a great outlet for the imagination—the perfect field for independent thinkers.

Teamwork—Engineering takes teamwork, and engineers work with all kinds of people inside and outside the field. Whether they’re designers or architects, doctors or entrepreneurs, engineers are surrounded by smart, inspiring people.

Opportunities
—An engineering degree offers lots of freedom in finding a person’s dream job. It can be a launching pad for jobs in business, design, medicine, law, and government. To employers or graduate schools, an engineering degree reflects a well-educated individual who has been taught ways of analyzing and solving problems that can lead to success in all kinds of fields.

Helping Others—Imagine what life would be like without pollution controls to preserve the environment, life-saving medical equipment, or low-cost building materials for fighting global poverty. All this takes engineering. In very real and concrete ways, engineers save lives, prevent disease, reduce poverty, and protect our planet.Want to learn about effective engineering messages?

EJHS Hosts Science Girls' STEM Careers Workshop

Thanks to Ms. Cagle and Mrs. Phillips for hosting EJHS' Science Girl's STEM Careers Workshop where 39 girls took a quiz to find out their STEM Type and then explored possible job opportunities. They then followed it up with a visit to the theater to see the movie#HiddenFigures about the African American female "Computers" who contributed their mathematical skills to the space race in the 1960s. What a fun #girlsinSTEM night!

VEX IQ Robotics Competition

VEX IQ Robotics Competition
On Saturday, January 21, 2017, students from Edgewood Primary School, Edgewood Intermediate School, and Stinesville Elementary School competed in the first annual Richland-Bean Blossom VEX IQ Robotics Competition at Stinesville Elementary.  In addition to these three schools, there were seven other schools that participated in the event from surrounding counties.  Students worked in teams during the first semester of the school year to build a robot that was able to move balls from one area of a field to another in a one minute time frame.  In partnerships, students worked collaboratively with a pair from another school to accumulate points toward a teamwork challenge. The competition focused on communication, teamwork, and problem solving.  

All three schools were able to participate in this venture thanks to a grant from the TechPoint Foundation for Youth, and all three elementaries look forward to continue growing the program in future years. For more information, you can search “VEX IQ” online.
