Helps all students understand the breadth of work different types of engineers and scientist do. Also provides girls and other underrepresented groups role models so they see that they “belong” in STEM. Best for science or engineering classes or after-school STEM clubs. The teacher, or student, provides a short summary about one engineer or scientist found on RePicture.com at the beginning of each class or club meeting.
• Profiles of engineers that match the demographics (e.g., gender, race) of the U.S. student population, so students can find an engineer that “looks” like them.
• Ability to search for engineers based on key words, such as “civil” for students interested in civil engineering.
• Chance for students to learn about the work STEM professionals, such as the projects they work on, what their typical day is like, and what skills have been most important to their career.
