In this month’s lesson “How We Work: Career Explorations in Engineering,” we connected Ms. Thompson’s classroom at Evans Elementary in Alabama with Kristin and Ed, from the littleBits engineering team. Students crafted their own questions to understand what it’s like to be an electronics engineer, with topics ranging from product design, course advise, favorite projects and team collaboration.
