I was complimenting Claudia on the lovely girly robot that she built with her Legos. I commented that both kids have really started building impressive things.
Well, of course I’m a good builder. I want to be an engineer, like Daddy.
I told her that it was a great idea. She would have to work very hard and learn a lot of math.
I know I’ll be a good engineer. She said. I already know how to read plans. You just look for the elevators.
I didn’t want to disappoint her and tell her that there is a lot more to a set of drawings than just locating the elevators and stairwells, but on the other hand, she is only five and that is probably a fairly unusual skill for a someone her age.
But then she blew me away.
If you want to put a pool in your plans you can do it two ways. You can either draw a pool or you can just put your building near a pool that is already there.
I like the way the girl thinks. That second way could save you a lot of time and money. I think she will be an excellent engineer. I suggest engineering design firms start recruiting her now.
