our products

Engineers find solutions to needs. While collecting useful resources (see Pinterest), we often find products that should exist but don't, especially in light of our guidelines. So we make those products. Below you'll find resources for teachers, as well as products that create positive and fun impressions about STEM (and particularly engineering).

If you have a suggestion for a new product, let us know!

Eight Traits of Engineers

Many teachers who read Engineering for the Uninitiated requested a poster for their classroom, so we delivered! This poster describes each of the 8 Traits of Engineers: Creativity, Communication, Spatial Skills, Persistence, Science, Math, Tools and Technology, and Problem Solving.

FUN DESIGNS


We feel that STEM, particularly engineering, needs a little good, clean fun. These designs are available for purchase at Zazzle which allows you to select different colors and styles if you like. If you have a special event and want to customize or bulk order products with these designs, let us know!


Computer Scientists/Engineers Have Byte! 
for your feisty computer person

Computer scientists and engineers have a lot of fun and usually a bit of attitude. This design plays on the bit/byte terminology. For those in the know, the "nibble" term is an inside joke on the whole BInary digiT world.

Can be customized and/or sold in bulk for your computer/IT event. Contact us to talk about details.

Tools of the Trade 
for engineers with pizzazz
Engineers are creative. This design showcases the tools of typical engineering disciplines, including civil, mechanical, electrical, chemical, and computer engineering.

Can be customized and/or sold in bulk for your engineering event. Contact us to talk about details.

Available as...
We Are the Engineers
for female engineers with a bit of sass
Ladies, tired of people saying "We'll get started when the engineers arrive" and looking past you? Maybe you just want to show that you can be a woman and an engineer, too. This design is for you!

Can be customized and/or sold in bulk for your females in engineering event. Contact us to talk about details.

Available as...
Girls + STEM
An invitation to girls to change the world with STEM

We created this image to inspire girls pursuing STEM, specifically designing it to address the barriers found in research:
  • Hanging back in hands-on activities until invited in
  • Not seeing STEM as a way to help people
  • Perceiving STEM as individual, isolated activities rather than interpersonal, social ones
  • Not seeing themselves (because of gender, race, etc) as STEM professionals
Can be customized and/or sold in bulk for your females in engineering event. Contact us to talk about details.
Smart, Sexy, Tech-Savvy Engineer
The sex appeal of engineering is in being able to engineer, right?

I don't know about you, but I have come to find capable engineers just as attractive as capable athletes, law enforcement, and artists. This was created to remind us that good engineers:
  • Are smart (not arrogant!)
  • Wield their technology like a boss (not a bully)
  • and are sexy (attractive) as a result
Can be customized and/or sold in bulk for your engineering event. Contact us to talk about details.
Woman Engineer (vintage design)
for sassy female engineers with an appreciation for the 70s



In the 70's we middle aged women engineers had Charlie's Angels as our strong women model. Certainly, newer models are less compromising, but for those who appreciate that complex situations can turn our well, this design is for you.

Can be customized and/or sold in bulk for your female engineering event. Contact us to talk about details.
Pizza Pie Day
because Pi is so special--and delicious

Sweet pie is lovely for Pi day but if you want a change, consider this design. Plus, look at the nerdy extras:
  • relation of diameter and radius with circumference
  • digits of pi (for your memorization contest)
Can be customized and/or sold in bulk for your engineering event. Contact us to talk about details.
