Did you always know what you wanted to be when you grew up? Here’s another way to have that conversation with kids today.

About us

Engineers of Tomorrow is a not-for-profit that is shaping the engineering narrative by telling better stories.

That question used to make me S.W.E.A.T!

My inner narrative would sound something like this…

What’s the right answer?

What if I say something and they tell me I can’t?!?

How can I possibly know what opportunities will be available when I’m ready to make that BIG decision??

Anyone relate?

At EoT, our job is to teach YOU how to talk to kids in a way that WON’T make them sweat. 😰

Instead of…

What do you want to be when you grow up?

How about…

What’s a problem you want to solve?

Much better!

Moving beyond…

umm…a doctor? a lawyer? a teacher?

“What’s a problem you want to solve?” gives you the opportunity to really LISTEN.

To connect.

To have a meaningful conversation and share your own personal experiences that might impact that kid’s perspective.

If this is something that resonates with you, or you want to learn more about how we train engineers to talk about, well….engineering….here’s a link that should help!
