Engineering Haiku Contest!

In honor of National Engineers week, we thought it would be fun to run a little contest: Create an Engineering Haiku! Although we know engineers are typically not known for their poetry skills, we believe our readers are up to the task.


In case you have forgotten (middle school English class was a long time ago) the following guide will help you formulate a fantastic engineer-inspired Haiku. A Haiku is a Japanese verse written in three lines: the first line should have five syllables, the second has seven, and the third has five. The poem should be more than just a few words, think instead about capturing the moment in which you decided to become an engineer or create a picture of what life as an engineer is like.




The first place winner will receive a pocket drone!

The contest runs February 15th- 23rd winners will be announced the 24th on our blog.
