Abstract: Influencing the low entry rates of minorities into engineering is the lack of awareness, contact, or identification with engineers or scientists by minority youth and their parents, along with a lack of understanding of necessary college preparation or inadequate financial means. The discovery by minority youth that technical engineering knowledge is one of the keys to equality is a realization that all ASCE members should welcome and encourage.
