My Perfect Gig interviews JETS (Junior Engineering Technical Society) Executive Director Leann Yoder to talk about our future engineers. JETS is a national non-profit educational organization dedicated to promoting engineering and technology careers to our nation's young people. Since 1950, JETS academic competitions, educational activities, and career guidance resources have been exciting students about careers in engineering and technology. JETS makes engineering "real," "relevant," and "fun" by helping students discover engineering for themselves. JETS provides programs and resources that let students learn about and experience engineering first-hand. From exciting student competitions to assessment tools and career exploration materials, JETS helps students plan for rewarding futures by showing them how engineering can help them pursue their dreams. JETS programs touch more than 40,000 students and 10,000 educators from 6,000 high schools across the country every year. JETS participants are a diverse group-more than 1/2 are from groups that are traditionally underrepresented in engineering and technology fields, including 1/3 who are female.
