Engineering Makes Equity - and We DON’T MEAN Jobs

An unlikely discipline - engineering - can help solve the equity problem. This is not another panel about 21st century jobs. It’s about how engineering teaches the exact skill set that’s needed to solve sensitive challenges: collaboration, problem solving, understanding and creativity. The Museum of Science of Boston, which has taught more than 15 million K-12 students the basics of engineering, will put this theory to the test with those who’ve studied equity on the ground.
