About the author
Celeste Baine began her journey as an author back in 1997 when she wrote the 1st edition of Is There an Engineer Inside You? Shortly after, she began working at a Science Teacher Training Center and wondered why there were so few places training K-12 teachers to teach engineering. In 2002, I founded the Engineering Education Service Center to get more teachers involved in teaching engineering and to create ways to open the doors for student exploration. Over the last 14 years, she has authored of over twenty books and booklets on engineering careers and education and won following awards
The Norm Augustine Award from the National Academy of Engineering (The Norm Augustine award is given to an engineer who has demonstrated the capacity for communicating the excitement and wonder of engineering). The American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) Engineering Dean Council Award for the Promotion of Engineering Education and Careers. The Rochester section of the IEEE Engineering Education Advocate Award. The Boston Society of Civil Engineers Clemens Herschel Award for publications that enable a teacher to take on the task of demystifying the engineering profession for middle school students. The John Green Award from the Tulsa Engineering Foundation.
Last year, she wrote the books and training materials for every K-12 teacher in the state of Oregon to use the Engineering Design Process to enhance the teaching of science. She is listed on the National Engineers Week website as one of 50 engineers you should meet and she has been named one of the Nifty-Fifty individuals who has made a major impact on the field of engineering by the USA Science and Engineering Festival. She has spent the past dozen years advising students and parents on the challenges and benefits of obtaining an engineering degree by providing fun and engaging presentations and workshops for schools, colleges, universities, and organizations. The talks are fun because most people don't know how much you can do with an engineering degree and/or how it can allow you to follow your dreams.
