Alabama each year for the next 10 years.
• There are 7 colleges of engineering in
Alabama.

The Reality
• Not every student will become an
engineer. However, those in the Physics
class in high school are our potential.
• We still need skilled workers. If you teach
courses other than college prep physics,
those kids need the same experiences
with design challenges, team work and
problem solving
