To create a generation of innovative problem solvers that will shape their world, we need to engage youth in engineering activities. Engineering education promotes development of an engineering mindset—the values, attitudes, and thinking skills associated with engineering. This session introduces engineering and engineering mindset, focusing on why they are important. Ten engineering practices that help youth develop and strengthen an engineering mindset will be highlighted. Participants will reflect on examples and short video clips from educational settings that illustrate the practices and what they look like when youth engineer. Participants will leave with strategies for creating engineering environments that invite all learners to develop an engineering mindset.
