What do Engineers do?
"Anything that is built must first be engineered, or planned out. An engineer is a person who designs and builds complex products, machines, systems, or structures. Engineers want to know how and why things work." Watch this video from NASA to learn about what professional engineers do.Although some of us may not be interested in becoming a professional engineer when we grow up, we "engineer" many things in our every day lives. We think about how to solve problems, make things easier to work with, and, in the end, improve our lives. Can you think of a problem your solved recently? How did you think about it? Did you test it out? Were you satisfied with the result?
