I think that this video does a great job of reminding folks how engineering and technology does, in fact, better the world. This would be a good video to not only showcase in some of my EET courses, but also at our local area 5th grade student community outreach events. It s at these events that my students and I attempt to encourage 5th graders to one day pursue a career related to engineering and technology. The fact that the TED Ed speaker is female will also be a powerful mentor for the female students in the audience regardless of whether they are in 5th grade or sitting in a college level classroom.
