Andrew King

Andrew King is a Brisbane based consulting engineer with qualifications in Chemical and Environmental Engineering. He is passionate about the integral role of engineering in environmental management and sustainability and is a Climate Reality Leader. Children are very interested in the things that engineers do yet there are very few engineers in children's literature. Consequently, Engibear and his friends Engilina and the Bearbot were created as a "friendly faces" of engineering – a way to introduce engineering to young children.
