So, You Thought Engineering Was Boring? #4

Remember when you were a kid? Of all the things you wanted to be, did you ever consider engineering as a field? Yet,  nearly every child seems to innately know how to make a paper airplane.

We invite you to explore feats of engineering and challenge others to do the same and be sure to post your results to our Facebook or Instagram pages. We’d love to hear your results!

THE CHALLENGE

128256131How to begin: Do any one or more of the 10 Amazing Paper Tricks. Take a fun video or photo of your results and let us know how it went. Be sure to hashtag us at: #IAMMOTIVATION

Our goal:  To rediscover that sciences and engineering and have fun with them. Exposure and exploration (not matter how small) can influence anyone’s interests or passion. Our goal is always to positively influence both teen and adults minds about careers in STEM.

Okay, so there isn’t much of a career in paper tricks, but changing your mind and how you feel about engineering (or any STEM related field) could mean all the difference in everyone’s world: making it a better place!

So, You Think Science is Boring #3

Some teens never consider a career in STEM related fields because of intimidation.  Subjects like science, technology, engineering and math are not always the most popular: but, maybe they should be.

People live their lives trusting someone knows the answers without ever really exploring for themselves. 

You can choose to be different.

All it takes is changing your mindset.  That’s really the key to what science and chemistry related fields are: it’s all the study of change.

So, You Think Science is Boring? #2

Amazing! Look at what happens when you run water through a 24hz Sine Wave.

There are so many things just waiting to be discovered.  Why not have a career in STEM related fields? Who knows, the next major discovery just needs someone young enough to believe it’s all possible!  Why not have it be you?

Nature vs. Nurture? Let’s Do The Math

It’s so interesting (regarding enrollment in a distance learning college). It has the type of maths I love. It’s real maths — theories, complex numbers, all that type of stuff,” she giggles. “It was super easy. My mum taught me in a nice way. I want to (finish the course) in two years. Then I’m going to do my PhD in financial maths when I’m 13. I want to have my own bank by the time I’m 15 because I like numbers and I like people and banking is a great way to help people. ~Esther Okade, cnn.com

For now we want her to enjoy her childhood as well as her maths. By the time she was four I had taught her the alphabet, her numbers, and how to add, subtract, multiply and division. ‘I saw that she loved patterns so developed a way of using that to teach her new things. I thought I would try her with algebra, and she loved it more than anything. She wants to be a millionaire. ~Mrs. Omonefe Okada (Esther’s mother) DailyMail.com
