Engineers save more lives than doctors!

If you ask many girls what they want to do when they grow up, they will answer, "I want to be a doctor, because I want to help people."

Here is one woman one who is working hard to expand the career choices before girls and young women. Engineering (if done right) can help bring clean drinking water, life saving medical equipment and many other things that impact lives every day.

Hey! Was linking to one of my old posts where you had commented. I am no longer in 'the district' since I homeschool, but wanted to give you an update on the R&S issue that I starting working on years ago: http://miscthing.blogspot.com/2009/12/been-busy-advocating-against-abuse-of.html

I blame a lot of the problem on the media. You never see interesting, intelligent, female engineers on shows. There are doctors, lawyers, cops, cooks, but no engieers. You should write a script and submit it. You have such a great insight into this area that you'd be the perfect roll model for a show! Bones does death; AbFab does life!
