It’s been over four years since I first posted about Engineer Girl on this site… and I think it’s time for a reminder of this excellent resource.
Engineer Girl is a site sponsored by the National Academy of Engineering with the goal of promoting and encouraging young women to learn about engineering as a career. With the introduction of the Next Generation Science Standards and a clear focus on K-12 engineering instruction- Engineer Girl may provide some useful resources to K-12 teachers. Here are some of what’s available:
- Multiple stories of women describing their work in engineering fields
- Several interviews with female engineers
- Descriptions and videos of what engineers do
- Ideas for how to get involved in engineering
