Dear Colleagues, I am developing a curriculum for HS STEM in North Carolina and found this excellent link (to a nationwide group) to encourage teenage girls to study Engineering: http://www.engineeryourlife.org/cms/inspiringwomen.aspx It has real-life young women engineers telling their stories of how they got to pursue and start careers in the 'New' Engineering... which is now a much more inter-disciplinary interactive profession. The website has portrait and work-site photos, brief biographies, and real engineering projects that they have accomplished worldwide...mentioning specific companies and country locations. And these young women are 'down-to-earth'--could be your neighbor or your neighbor's daughter-- who are inspirational people to learn about... Simply put: this is a profound website... Sincerely, Allen Berg
