Every year, some 60,000 students graduate with engineering degrees. Many, presumably, seek engineering jobs right out of college. But how many of them stay in those jobs their entire career? Not as many as you might think. According to a 1999 survey conducted by the National Science Foundation, approximately one-third of all engineering degree holders are employed in non-S&E (science and engineering) fields. Two-thirds, though, say their work is engineering-related.
These free camps are designed for children ages 10 to 18. Attendees are introduced to 3D CAD software and shown how 3D printers can make their work a reality. Many classes were nearly 50 percent girls and 50 percent boys.
