Influential engineers don’t always create technologies for spacecrafts. Some, like Vanessa Galvez, have made an out-of-this-world impact in their own community. Galvez is a civil engineer who became interested in engineering when watching a documentary about levee failures after Hurricane Katrina. At age 26, she supervised the installation of 164 bioswales in Queens, NY. Bioswales help mitigate the toxins and pollutants in urban stormwater runoff, which will protect the borough from pollution and flooding. Galvez’s work can provide a blueprint for future city improvement projects, and it is hugely important to Queens, creating a safe and clean environment for generations to come.

Elementary school is not too early to start teaching your child about career awareness. It is important for your child to become aware of how his or her schooling is connected to a successful future.
While in elementary school, you can help your child:
• Discover the variety of jobs available to him or her;
• Connect what he or she is learning in school to real-world situations;
• Imagine himself or herself in an occupation; and
• Develop work-readiness skills such as working and playing with others, making decisions, solving problems and being a leader.
Here are some websites that you can look at:
