ENGINEERING STARTS SMALL!

I was at the Doctor with my daughter today and saw the neatest thing.  I saw a creative mother with her young son of about three getting a ball out of the reward machine. Afterward she needed to talk to the receptionist and walked him over to the Lego table. She said, ” here let’s build a  ramp for your ball then I will go talk to the receptionist.”  In all of about 60 seconds the mother had encouraged engineering in the eyes of her young son! I think the biggest part is becoming aware of what engineering is!
