Climate change. Lack of clean water. Failing infrastructure. These are just a few of the biggest challenges our #world faces today. Unfortu- nately, these are challenges that if not solved, could end civilization, as we know it. But that’s not going happen. Why? Because #engineers are going to #save the world; but not without YOUR help. Less and less children in the United States are going to school for engineering. Why? They don’t think it is an exciting career. They often choose finance over engineering because the stereotype is that engineers are nerds with pocket protectors. Not true. In this inspirational talk, civil engineer and author, #Anthony #Fasano, will dispel all myths about engineering being a nerdy or boring profession.

thousands of engineers and engineering students, inspiring them to be the best they can be.
