Engineering Club

Thank you to everyone for participating in Engineers Week!!:) Because this week is engineering week, we wanted to talk about a few female engineers. Ex: Mae Carol Jemison. She was the first female African American astronaut and was an engineer and physicist on the Space Shuttle Endeavor in 1992. (I thought this would be good because it also pertains to Black History Month!) There is also Hedy Lemarr who is most famous for being a 1930s/40s movie star but few know that she invented a remote-controlled communications system for the U.S military during World War II. Lamarr’s frequency hopping theory now serves as a basis for modern communication technology, such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi network connections.

Kaira Brown and Sophie Bauhs will both be participating in Meet of Champions this weekend! Wish them luck!
