How do you encourage K-12 students to pursue engineering?

Back when I was applying to college, I wasn't entirely sure what I wanted to study. My dad, a mathematics professor, encouraged me to take my skills in science and math to an engineering program.


At the time, the engineering profession was a little bit of a mystery to me. I had never taken an "engineering" class or told how other coursework might apply to real-world engineering projects. Had I not had the insight of an adult who understood the discipline, I don't know that I would have tried it.


How do you help students to understand what engineering is and what skills it requires?
