Kids Talk Radio Student Backpack Scientists and Engineers
There is a difference between a scientists and an engineer. What is a scientists? A scientist, in a broad sense, is one engaging in a systematic activity to acquire knowledge. In a more restricted sense, a scientist is an individual who uses the scientific method. The person may be an expert in one or more areas of science. This article focuses on the more restricted use of the word. Scientists perform research toward a more comprehensive understanding of nature, including physical, mathematical and social realms.
Scientists are also distinct from engineers, those who develop devices that serve practical purposes. When science is done with a goal toward practical utility, it is called applied science (short of the creation of new devices that fall into the realm of engineering). When science is done with an inclusion of intangible aspects of reality it is called natural philosophy.
What is an engineer?
An engineer is a professional practitioner of engineering, concerned with applying scientific knowledge, mathematics and ingenuity to develop solutions for technical problems. Engineers design materials, structures, technology, inventions, machines and systems while considering the limitations imposed by practicality, safety and cost. The word engineer is derived from the Latin roots ingeniare ("to contrive, devise") and ingenium ("cleverness"). Engineers are grounded in applied sciences, and their work in research and development is distinct from the basic research focus of scientists. The work of engineers forms the link between scientific discoveries and their subsequent applications to human needs.
Many of our student backpack scientists have background knowledge in both science and engineering.

Kids Talk Radio Science and Engineering Interns
We are looking for students to join our new intern programs. Students are trained to become backpack journalists , scientists and engineers. You will be trained to report STEM news for Kids Talk Radio, Super School Teen TV, Super School Press and Youth World News. We invite you to learn how to become a backpack scientists and conduct all of the tests necessary to explore marine science, soil and water.
Help Wanted: We need interns.
