Identifying Potential Engineers
There is no one “type” of person who becomes an engineer. If you know kids who . . .
- are creative
- like collaborating with others
- are curious and persistent
- want to make a difference
- like solving problems or improving processes
. . . then you know some potential engineers. Are you surprised that you didn’t see “excels at math and science” on this list? It’s important that engineers have a solid background in math and science, but ultimately, the best engineers are people who use their communication skills, imagination, and analytical abilities to invent, design, and build things that matter.
