How To Think Like a Scientist & Save the World

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

I’m an engineer. That doesn’t just describe my training or my job description, it’s who I am. I look at the world through a scientific, analytical lens, and when I identify problems, I prototype ways to solve them. Engineers have unique viewpoints and skills and, I argue, a unique responsibility to use our abilities for the good of all. Why can’t we, as engineers, team up to solve some of the world’s biggest problems? If you’ve read about (or lived) the Lean Startup or used Agile practices to build things incrementally and iteratively, you know how important it is to take action now, and not wait. As an engineer, you understand the value of gathering data, learning quickly, steering reactively and constantly improving whatever you’re working on. Based on Ryan’s real-world experiences, this session will focus on how to better understand, educate and enable the citizen engineer, giving them the practical advice and tools they need to take on this important responsibility.
