Thank You from ASEE

Dear ASEE Student Members,

First of all, a big thank you to those of you who participated in our survey last year! We asked you to tell us a little about yourself and to give some advice to high-school students considering engineering school. Your responses were so thoughtful and interesting that we made them a feature of the new Engineering, Go For It magazine (pages 58-59 in the online version of the magazine (http://www.egfi-k12.org/read-the-magazine/), and a part of our new web site. Here’s the new web site: www.egfi-k12.org, and here’s the section with your advice: http://egfi-k12.org/engineer-your-path/good-advice/.

If you didn’t get a chance to offer advice, it’s not too late. We’d like even more interesting suggestions for middle-school and high-school students. Share your path at:http://egfi-k12.org/engineer-your-path/good-advice/#good-advice.

We have also started a student blog, http://students.egfi-k12.org/, and encourage you to submit a photo and your story of why you chose engineering, and your goals for the future. The idea is to give middle school and high school students an idea of the kinds of work they could do as an engineer, and to show them that people of all different backgrounds become engineers. You can do this via email to me at s.harrison@asee.org.

Please take a look at the web site, and then spread the word! Become a fan of our Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/pages/eGFI/83814280068, and follow us on Twitter! If you have other ideas on how to get the word out, let us know.

All the best,
