EngineerGirl has been literally rated, “A Great Website for Kids” by the Association for Library Service to Children. After visiting the site, I have to agree with ALSC that it is an awesome site for young students who would like to know about engineering.
Obviously, the site is aimed at girls. However, there is a lot of information that will appeal to both genders. The “Try on a Career” page allows you to click on different types of engineering occupations to learn more. The site also includes interviews with engineers, resources, and information on “How to Get There.”
EngineerGirl is currently sponsoring an essay contest for girls and boys in grades 3-12. Students must propose a new technology that they think would help in at least one of these areas:
- Well-being, and
- Environmental sustainability
Entries are due by 2/1/16. For more information, go to this page.
I’m definitely adding EngineerGirl to my “STEM Inspiration” Pinterest Board!
