Updated: May 17

Andrew Learns about Engineers, the fourth book in the Andrew's Career Day book series, is the must-have children's picture book for National Engineers Week. Here are 3 reasons why!


-1-


In 1951, National Engineers Week (or E-Week for short) was founded by the National Society of Professional Engineers ("NSPE") to ensure a diverse future engineering workforce by increasing understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers.


Andrew Learns about Engineers is a great book and beginner career resource to introduce young children (ages 6-10) to the career of an engineer. It is a great way to promote learning and awareness of the featured profession by engaging both kids and adults with simple and slightly complex words, and beautifully diverse and inclusive illustrations of engineers. By the end of this book, any child will be thinking of a possible career as an engineer.

The theme for Engineers Week 2022 (running from February 20 to February 26) is Reimagining the Possible, focusing on how engineers make a difference in our world and engaging students in engineering.


Andrew Learns about Engineers highlights the contributions of engineers from amusement parks to clean water and so much more. It also includes images of engineering pioneers (think Mae Jemison or Lonnie Johnson!). This rhyming career exploration book provides just enough information in an easy to follow and interesting way. After reading, your child will be inspired to learn more about the career and the special pioneers of the field.

Engineers Week helps build children's STEM identity.

And so does Andrew Learns about Engineers by sharing the message of how engineers make a difference in our lives, introducing young readers to the engineering design process, and exposing young children to the profession even if they do not know an engineer. The book also comes with a FREE lesson plan for teachers and FREE activity sheets for everyone!
