Toddlers in training

I wrote the following article for the South African Institution of Civil Engineering’s (SAICE) magazine and it was published in June 2019.  In the opinion piece we explore why it is so important to value the traditional trajectory of development and let little ones play with the physical world before exploring the virtual one, if we hope to develop technicians and engineers of the future.  It was so wonderful to be given the opportunity to share the value of play beyond the fields of health and education.
