I spent the day at work with Atom and Marie in hopes of helping them decide on a STEM education and career. Although they have already seen most of the projects we went to, having dedicated time focused on talking about working in STEM is so worth it. It’s a time for them to get too see the many aspects of STEM that doesn’t focus on technical parts such as seeing the many different types of people that call themselves engineers, the various problems they’re trying to solve and the creativity that goes into solving engineering problems.
I hope their exposure to this environment helped open the potential to deciding on a STEM major especially in physics, math, or chemistry!
It was a blast hanging out with my kids.
