On December 4, 2007 at the Tech Museum’s in San Jose there was a summit to encourage a new generation of women engineers. Text stolen from DJCline.com. We are facing some daunting engineering problems over the next century and will need make the most of everyone’s abilities. The important message is that anyone can learn and master the principles of engineering.

Lots of heavy hitters were putting forth ideas and projects to get more young people interested in carrers in math and science. I think it was the first time I had seen all of these people and organizations in the same room.
