For a long time I have been impressed with just how creative and artistic engineers can be. In my early 20s I met someone studying to be an electrical engineer. Along with his disciplined and detail oriented approach to his work, he also displayed an artsy side.
In my latest Citizens’ Climate Radio podcast episode I ask Dr. Hugh Sealy, an environmental engineer, about his creative side. As a problem solver, he is looking for solutions. Creativity is important to devise elegant solutions to complicated problems.
I aslo feature a 19 year old student, Adia Samba-Quee, from Springfield, MA. She is just beginning her journey as someone concerned about climate change. Her response? To use comedy and journalism.
For the Art House I get creative myself by imagining what a historian will have to say about us from the year 2167. Turns out the celebrities of our future will be engineers!
