Just months removed from his viral You Can Be ABCs rap song video, six-year old Sam has been on Ellen, ReTweeted by the Obama’s and has now launched an ongoing YouTube series through which he dives deeper into each profession identified in his original A-Z rap. We were thrilled to be part of his E is for Engineering episode. The full video is available on More With Sam Youtube channel and embedded below.
In the video, several of our engineers from across the country talk to Sam about their work, take him on site visits and help him understand all the positive ways engineers impact the world. Then, Sara Schonour, Director of our Lighting Studio, spends time virtually walking Sam through several experiments to help him understand key concepts of engineering. They talk about gravity, building strong foundations, geometry, fruit snacks and more.
It was a joy for our team to be part of this episode and we fully support Sam and his family’s mission to “continue using extraordinary platforms, like YouTube, to increase literacy among children who look like Sam, encourage career exploration. and of course, to continue spreading joy.”
As Sam says in the video, it was E…. Exciting.
