The typical way mathematical proof is taught in education is unpleasant, perhaps partly due to the pointlessness of it. Adjust it by introducing proofs with tangible outcomes:

Easiest is computer programs: Prove that the program works and does not crash. A geometric proof might be used to show that a mechanical device will actually do what it is supposed to do. Such proofs are more satisfying: the effort in proving it had a point.

Unfortunately most engineering is not done with mathematical rigor.
