DIVERSITY IN THE WORKFORCE - LIVING STORIES
Each one of us looks at the same situation from a different perspective. A diverse workforce with an opportunity to voice their opinions and insights will allow for more opportunities to think outside the box to dream up new products, enhance a product's features, or identify a problem which is obvious to one person, but invisible to a homogeneous workforce. See this movie trailer which offers some highlights of contributions made by minorities, in addition to the Hidden Figures. See A Place at the Table

VOLUNTEER AND SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
The Tech Museum of Innovation encourages prospective engineers by presenting a "challenge" to teams of students in Grades 4-12 to use the engineering design process to solve a real-world problem. Their challenge: Design and build a hovercraft that can navigate different terrains. Judges are needed on March 30 and 31 to interview the teams, review their lab notebooks and evaluate the performance of the devices. For more information, see thetech.org/thetechchallenge.

IEEE Helps Out at the Synopsys Science and Technology Championship (14 March 2019)
The Santa Clara Valley Section of the IEEE sent ten local IEEE members to help judge projects at the Synopsys Science and Technology Challenge. The science fair was held at the San Jose Convention center on March 14th. This is the 59th year that this Silicon Valley event has been held, and our IEEE section has participated in this event continuously for over 30 years.
IEEE volunteers evaluated over 400 projects in categories that included electrical, mechanical, software and biomedical engineering. From these projects we selected 12 projects that demonstrated an excellent understanding of the use of electrical and electronic principles. In addition to evaluating projects our volunteers spent several hours talking with students about their projects and encouraging them to continue their technology and scientific studies.
The IEEE judges this year were: Keith Gudger, Ken Doniger, Srinivas Vennapureddy, Geetha Vuppal, Scott Wakefield, Edward Miller, Wes Ramirez, George Rossmann, Lee Tavrow and Charlie Neuhauser. In addition, to the Santa Clara fair, many of these IEEE judges also assisted at the San Mateo and Santa Cruz science fairs. Local science fairs are held during February and March. If you would like to join us next year, please send a note to Charlie Neuhauser at CNeuhauser@Earthlink.net.
