Sweden currently has a shortage of engineers, a profession that historically has been a very homogenous group. Because of this, Engineers without borders Sweden inform and inspire children to seek an education in engineering or technology. This is accomplished by assisting students with their studies, acting as role-models, and showing a non-conventional perspective on science, technology and engineering. We aim to promote engineering as a creative, fun and interesting subject, and to promote a diversity among engineers as a group.
Study aid is a tangible way to make a clear impact by helping children and youths to be able to reach their potential in school. With our long-term view we get a chance to build relationships and act as role models.
With clear hands-on examples how engineering can be used and our own personal stories how we came to be engineers we visit schools to inform and inspire children about the engineering profession.
