Abstract
All Swedish citizens have the opportunity to continue
their education on a university level. However, children
with highly educated parents are far more likely to continue
their studies after high school than others. The aim
of this project is to inspire children to natural science,
innovation and engineering at a young age. This to show
what different possibilities the future has to offer, no matter
what your social background might be.

The target group is children aged 6-9. At young age,
children are very inquisitive and are easily taught, what
a child learns at this age lays out the fundamental conditions
of its future.

All Swedish citizens have the opportunity to continue
their education on a university level. However, children
with highly educated parents are far more likely to continue
their studies after high school than others. The aim
of this project is to inspire children to natural science,
innovation and engineering at a young age. This to show
what different possibilities the future has to offer, no matter
what your social background might be.

The target group is children aged 6-9. At young age,
children are very inquisitive and are easily taught, what
a child learns at this age lays out the fundamental conditions
of its future.

The intention of this project is to introduce the occupation
engineer through a fictional children’s book about
the character Inga Ingenjör (Inga Engineer). It is not a
textbook but an inspirational children’s book designed to
encourage children to explore their own creativity.

Feedback groups have been used to make certain that
the content suits the reader and also to determine the
proper age group. The groups have consisted of supervisors,
pedagogues, teachers, parents and enthusiasts as
well as children ages 4-10.

The book is a complementary picture book which
means the text and illustrations are depending on each
other to tell the full story. This invites the child to follow
along the pictures and thereby the story.

To reach as many children as possible, books will be
handed out to schools in districts with fewer academic
graduates. The first demarcation has been set to Malmö.
The project is a collaboration with Andrea Pettersson,
Lund University, Faculty of Engineering and their Management
of equality, equal opportunities and diversity.
The book will be published August 20th 2015 by the
publishing house Fri Tanke. (Less)
