When most of us think about engineering we think of math and calculations, but it is much more than that. Engineers are essentially creators , who think up different ways of building and doing stuff. From space rockets to re-engineering DNA, engineers get to do it all. Engineering girl has some wonderful blogs that give us a peek into what engineers really do. Here’s a snippet from a post about Rebecca Junell, a test engineer at NASA.

Rebecca Junell learned to always ask questions, search for answers and keep reading. From an early age those seemingly simple things lead her to pursue a career in engineering.  That background in engineering has led her to NASA, where she works as a mechanical/test engineer at the John C. Stennis Space Center in Mississippi.

Junell first studied physics at a community college in Florida, but she was looking for more applications of physics. That’s what led her to study mechanical engineering, and she received her bachelor’s degree fromKettering University.  Junell was drawn to engineering because she likes solving problems and answering questions.

“I like being able to visualize how things work, being able to get that picture in your head of how you can manipulate ideas and put them together,” she said. “It’s nice to know that something works, but it’s even more important to understand the basic ideas of how the problem behaves. It’s kind of like the satisfaction of assembling puzzle pieces.”

There are several resources on the site on how to get a scholarship, design activities and such. The point of the website is to educate and arm parents and young girls with information.You can also ‘try on’ an engineering career.

They can use this to understand engineering as a field and look at interesting and meaningful work, which also happens to pay very well! Girls can’t do math or they don’t like science are well all hogwash. Nail paint, hair colour, cool accessories, time with friends all go well with engineering. Engineering is a way of life, the life of a thinker and creator. Engineering girl is making sure more girls understand this and give engineering a go.
