Engineers use math, science, and technology to solve real-world problems. The work often involves developing systems, structures, products, or materials. With engineering, you can make world changing ideas come to life! Some of the major disciplines in engineering include civil, mechanical, industrial, electrical, and materials engineering. Careers in this field include architecture, aerospace engineering, agricultural engineering, environmental engineering, and civil engineering. If engineering didn’t exist, we wouldn’t have things such as buildings, cars, and bridges.
At iSPACE we make engineering come to life for students of all ages with simple machines and roller coaster design!
“Engineering makes things better and cheaper for everyone,” says Patrick Holm, a project civil engineer in Olympia, Washington. “Without it, we couldn’t live in the kind of society we know—with bridges, clean water, and cars.”
