I was honored to be asked by Harris Corporation and Purdue University to speak at their first EcoMake event. EcoMake is an engineering hackathon that is focused on sustainability. Pictured with me are the brilliant engineers from Harris who agreed to stay in West Lafayette during the hackathon and serve as mentors to the approximately 150 participants. Harris also supplied each team with a box full of components, including two of my favorite toys: Arduino and Raspberry Pi. Very cool!
It's IEEE Day!
"IEEE Day: Celebrating the first time in history when engineers worldwide and IEEE members gathered to share their technical ideas in 1884. The 2018 IEEE Day’s theme is: 'Leveraging Technology for a Better Tomorrow'. While the world benefits from what’s new, IEEE focuses on what’s next."
Electrical engineers design for tomorrow; we make the world a better place. We develop prosthetics, satellites, green energy, robotics, and the device you're using to read this post.
IEEE allows us to share ideas and grow as professionals. I'm very proud to be an officer of Indiana Tech's IEEE, and a member of the global IEEE - "The world's largest technical professional organization for the advancement of technology".
Celebrate IEEE Day by talking to a young person about STEM careers, especially electrical engineering!
