Computers are transforming our world. Look around right now and you are sure to find at least one - but probably many - appliances that rely on computer hardware or software to function properly.

There are obvious computers: laptops, tablets, smart phones and gaming consoles; but there are also computers integrated into our cars, security systems, even the thermostats that control the heating and cooling in your home or school.

Today you may carry one in your backpack or pocket. In the not-too-distant future, you may be wearing them like sunglasses! No matter how the computers change in the future, you can be sure that engineers will help design, develop, and manufacture them.

Engineers even create the computer systems that other engineers use to design and improve machines, systems, and processes.

    How can we get more girls from underserved communities to learn engineering?
    I’m thrilled that places like Metro Achievement Center are bringing an Engineering Apprenticeship to girls from inner-city communities. There are lots of young people who would like to pursue these opportunities but just don’t know how. All it takes is a simple question like my teacher asked, “Have you ever thought about it?” Nobody else tells them, so they don’t know.
