What is Engineering?

I was recently reading the January/February 2021 issue of “Science  & Children” a publication of the National Science Teaching Association.  In this issue, I read an article written by Matt Bobrowsky.  His article was entitled “Q: Can a Simple Engineering Project Be Used to Teach Some Science?.”

Within the article, the author takes a quick look at the difference between science and engineering.  Science increases our knowledge about the universe and our surroundings in a systematic way, while engineering is the application of this knowledge to create new and better products.
