Any other female engineers out there? — The Bump
TTC After a Loss

Any other female engineers out there?

My little sister sent me this video and I think its fantastic!  Warning:  The video has elementary school aged girls so if that may bother you, you may want to skip it.

Women are definitely underrepresented in the engineering community especially in the defense industry where I work.  I thought I would pass this along to any other engineering ladies out there.  I love this idea to get girls involved in a male dominated profession.

Re: Any other female engineers out there?

  • I am not an engineer but one of my closest friends is and I wouldn't see her in any other profession.

    I saw that video a few days ago and cried (for several reasons heheh). Very empowering and adorable.

  • I was thinking about getting it for my niece but the reviews of the product aren't good. I love the idea though. I can't figure out the age group though. Amazon did not say. My niece is 10.
