Ayanna Patterson AddedMonday, March 4, 2019 at 10:11 PM Is it ok to just learn engineering skills for fun sometimes? I want to be an astronaut and many more things. How would I apply engineering to my life if I wanted to be a president or marine biologist?

Of course it is OK to just learn engineering skills for fun! Engineering is all about problem solving- and it doesn't matter what career path you take, solving problems will always be a part of your career and your life. Engineering skills- critical thinking, designing and re-designing are all important skills that you can apply in various future opportunities. I would encourage you to take in all that you can from engineering development options and they will help you build and grow throughout your education. Good Luck!
