National Engineer's Week 2011

I participated in National Engineer's week at my home town middle school with my colleagues. IBM is a sponsor of the yearly event which is designed to increase awareness of math and science and foster teamwork and creative thinking.  With my IBM co-workers we led five (5) 7th grade math classes in the tower of pasta project  which is always popular.  The science class conducted an owl pellet experiment and learned about the IBM Watson Jeopardy challenge.  As always, it was a very positive experience and I'm looking forward next year which will be my fifth year participating.
