What are some things I can do to get a taste of engineering?
Hi. My name is Mahalia and I'm 14. I'm interested in becoming an environmental engineer and I was wondering, what are some things I can do to, now, to kind of get a taste of engineering?

    Hi Mahalia!
    It's so great to hear from you, and to see that you have interest in becoming an environmental engineer! Enrolling in a variety of math and science courses while in school is a great start. If your are interested in the environmental aspect of engineering, taking classes like chemistry, physics, astronomy and biology are an important base for engineering. When I was in high school, I found several science/engineering/math based summer programs/camps offered by local universites and colleges that I enrolled in, that really helped further my interest in engineering. 
    Hope that helps!
