Publisher: American Society of Mechanical Engineers
Description: The American Society for Mechanical Engineers (ASME) was founded in 1880 by a small group of leading industrialists, and has grown since that time to include over 120,000 members in over 150 countries. This section of their website brings together a clutch of resources for those seeking to learn about career paths in the field. There are several items here: "Mechanical Engineering A to Z," "ME and MET: Which Path Will You Take?," "What is a Mechanical Engineer?," and "Why Knot? A Little Fun With Mechanical Engineering." The first resource allows users to learn about the "A to Z" of this field via fun games, quizzes, and interactives having to do with mechanical engineering. The "What is a Mechanical Engineer?" pamphlet provides answers to this question by looking at how these professionals work on power stations, mobile phones, and complex movie cameras. Visitors won't want to miss the other two resources here, which round out a great way to get young people thinking about joining this noble profession.
