Mechanical engineer and PhD student Sadhan Sathyaseelan cohosts with engineer-entrepreneur Pius Wong in today’s episode. We talk about Sadhan’s experience learning that engineering students want to be business leaders, and we brainstorm ideas for teaching entrepreneurship in schools. We also discuss our favorite entrepreneurs and learn about new trends to teach entrepreneurship as part of engineering in K-12.
