Alright, this one’s for all the Star Wars fans!

Today is May 4th.

May the fourth be with you….

There are many tie-ins we could point out today.

Connections between engineering and space travel may be the most obvious.

But, what’s coming to mind for us are the growth mindset lessons that Star Wars teaches us.

“In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment.” ( Dweck, 2015)

Engineering and growth mindset go hand-in-hand.

Let’s be honest.

Engineering is hard work!

Solving complex problems that often have never been solved before.

Talk about dedication!!

We’ve written before about the importance of resilience for engineers.

Resiliency is a theme that runs deep through all of the Star Wars films.

So, today we leave you with the wise words of Yoda. Who better to learn from?

The greatest teacher, failure is.

What’s your favorite Star Wars lesson??
