Women in Engineering Newsletter
Sunday 3rd September
From the Chair
Welcome to newsletter #2 for 2006. In this newsletter we are celebrating Father’s Day – 3rd September. There are two sides of the parent-child relationship that we discuss in the articles – firstly the role of fathers in giving their children an awareness of the world, which can include engineering. The other is the opportunity to Dads to become more involved with their kids when Mum is working, studying or having time to herself.
I have wonderful memories of being my Dad’s little apprentice as he would repair, invent and construct around the house. He explained how and why things worked, and clearly enjoyed the wonders of machines. Years later I get phone calls for help with his computer and he gets calls to help with my home projects – and that’s the way we like it.

September we are presenting a public seminar on
“Asperger’s Syndrome and
Autism && Engineering and Computing: Facts – Theories – Realities”.
In October we will have a seminar/workshop on
“Finances and Investing for
how women can create choice for themselves though financial management and we
will workshop the firsts steps to get you started.
We hope you enjoy this little tribute to Dads and have a great Father’s Day.
