The Learning Matters podcast has been relaunched! In this episode, Rachael Wettenstein speaks to Stacie Harrison, Dennis Cummings and Mary Lord, three of the key voices behind eGFI (Engineering, Go For It!), the nonprofit American Society for Engineering Education’s K-12 outreach program. eGFI is a multi-platform endeavor (magazine, website, newsletters) designed to inspire more students, especially women and minorities, to become engineers. There is also a website for K-12 teachers with free engineering related lesson plans and class activities. The eGFI website is entirely free.
The printed eGFI magazine, engineering flash cards that explain the top engineering disciplines, engineering posters, and new kids’ book “If I Were an Engineer” can be purchased in the eGFI online store.
In this interview, you can hear common misconceptions about the profession, why the U.S. is falling behind in science and how that can be addressed, and much more. Enjoy listening!
