Abstract: This study measures the impact of exposure to an engineering exhibit on children’s awareness of the roles and responsibilities of engineers. We studied 250 children, aged 8-16, in a quasi-experimental design. Results indicate the exhibit did not have a major impact in children’s perceptions of who engineers are but did positively impact what they knew about what engineers do as part of their job.
