I Am An Engineer #TransformTheFuture @INWED1919 #INWED19
IET aspires to influence the global engineering community to engineer a better world.
IET shared this video on Youtube ahead of International Women in Engineering day!
It isn’t just girls who have fears over starting a career in STEM – Over a quarter (29%) of respondents who identified as LGBTUA+ opted against having a career in STEM due to fear that they would be discriminated against.
A new campaign has been launched by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) designed to alter outdated perceptions within engineering.
According to the IET Skills and Demand in Industry Survey 2017 only 9% of UK engineering organisations actively engage with the Black Asian Minority Ethnic (BAME) and the LGBTQ+ community.

While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
