TED summary : The next generation of female engineers.
Female engineers are the minority which only 11 per cent in the US are women. Most people think that engineers are for boys while others agree that girls are more likely to be princess. Debbie Sterling is one of female engineers in the US. When she aged 6, she was a pretty normal kid who loved ballet, drawing and riding bikes. After graduating for senior high school, she was confused to continue her study what the major she would take. Then consultation with her tutor brought her to gain a high recommendation from her math teacher to major in engineering program.
In the light of this, she went off to Stanford which was a big deal and when she got to Stanford in her freshman year, she had no idea to major in. Yet, she should give it a try as her teacher suggested so that she should love the major and wanted to do it. Furthermore, she got the biggest obstacle when her professor gave a final assignment to draw in 3D. Her boys' classmate could finish in 5 minutes and she was able to finish in a week. In front of the class, her professor said " raise your hand if you think that Debbie should pass this class". Fortunately, her lovely friend said that she would, then she studied hard. In the final assignment, she could well finish it and passed the class.
