Founder’s Message

Gear was created to foster interest among today’s youth in a career in engineering, science or technology. It is vital that they learn how engineers and scientists add value to our society and without them the world today would not be possible.

Engineers and scientists are the true heroes of our modern world. Unfortunately the mass media does not promote this vision. Ask yourself this question; what is the football star without the engineer who designed the safety equipment for their sport? Not everyone has the opportunity to be a famous movie or sports star. But all of us have the potential to create something that can make the world a better place.

In closing, I’d like to leave you with two quotes that mean a lot to me. One is from Walt Disney himself. The other is from Herb Copperbottom (Robots movie).

“If you can dream it, you can build it”
Walt Disney

“A dream you do not fight for, can haunt you for the rest of your life”
Herb Copperbottom (Robots Movie)

Be Creative, Motivate others around you, invent something that will make the world a better place, and engineer your future.
