How do you handle discrimination as a female in the engineering field?

by Caroline Prather from Clinton, MS

I was discriminated today because I was the only girl in my class. I was told that "I should not be taking engineering because girls aren't smart enough." But it is my passion and I want to know how to handle the situation better next time.

Engineers not only turn ideas into reality, they help turn reality into fantasy.

Engineering plays an important role in the creation of movies, televisions shows, video games, and amusement parks. Engineers from many different fields make their living in the entertainment industry doing a wide variety of things: computer programming for games or special effects, building sets for specials shot or stunts, developing toys, designing and constructing rides - list of possible jobs goes on and on.

Engineers are also helping athletes to play and compete with better equipment, cutting-edge training tools, and even clothing designed to help the body improve its performance.

When you hike, surf, play ball, go to the movies, play video games, watch TV - whatever you do for fun - chances are you’re using or watching something that an engineer helped to create.
