        Ask an Engineer

        The engineer's primary role is to develop practical solutions to society's many and varied needs. This video from the Sciencenter in Ithaca, New York, shows that engineering work — which requires creativity, a knack for problem solving, and lots of training — is seldom boring and can be highly rewarding. An engineer's challenge might be to maintain healthy water conditions for aquarium inhabitants. Another's work may be isolated from public view and involve the cutting edge of technology. This resource is useful for introducing components of Engineering Design (ETS) from the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) to grade 3-12 students.

        "Ask an Engineer" is part of "Tech City," a traveling exhibition on engineering, developed for science museums with National Science Foundation funding. www.sciencenter.org Produced by Insights International.
