Ask an Engineer

I am amazed at how much basic engineering is a part of my children’s play on a regular basis. The same type of things we used to do as kids and I never recognized it simply as the basics of engineering – I just found them as a fun challenge! Projects like designing catapults, tree forts and couch forts, as well as all sorts of other inventions are some of my children’s favorite projects. You can find a fun list of STEM activities for kids to experiment with on DiscoverE. THIS MONTH is the 65th Anniversary of National Engineers Week and to celebrate U.S. Cellular is working to help increase interest in engineering and tech careers by holding “Ask an Engineer” sessions at Boys and Girls Clubs all over the country!

Ask an Engineer

“Ask an Engineer” sessions really help to bring the technical career to life for kids and show them various options of career paths available in engineering education. I love that they showcase various options for kids to cover a variety of interests. The sessions offer a hands-on look at how U.S. Cellular’s network operates. Kids and teens get a behind-the-scenes look at how a cellular network operates which is pretty intriguing. Plus make sure you check out the educator’s area that help guide you through tips and resources in the field of engineering with kids!
