What does an engineer look like?

Change the perception of what an engineer looks like! They aren’t all hard hatted men and women with blueprints. At this year’s Change The Ratio Waterloo Region event we saw how engineers are creators, makers, inventors and artists, too.

Grab a marker and a piece of paper, or your computer and favourite drawing program. Do this with your friends, colleagues, or kids. Share your images of what a modern engineer looks like, and how engineering makes a difference in our lives using the tags below or send by email.

The impact of engineering is all around us, let’s help kids see what engineers can do and see themselves as the engineers of the future! If you need some inspiration the National Engineering Month Ontario site has inclusive messaging to get you started. We shared them in a handout you can download: NEM activity sheet.

Here are some of the pictures made by attendees on March 8th. Get your colleagues or kids involved and let’s fill up this page!
