SEE 2010 & Illumin Magazine

It’s summer, so that means it’s time for SEE 2010!
SEE is Carnegie Mellow University’s Summer Engineering Experience for Girls. The aim of the program is to foster an interest in the sciences and math for teenage girls. For two weeks participants have the opportunity to learn how to think like engineers and examine the world around them as an engineer would.

While looking for websites that would be good for the girls participating in SEE 2010 we found an e-magazine called Illumin published by graduate undergraduate students at the University of Southern California's Viterbi School of Engineering. This magazine focuses on how everyday things work such as toilets, shoes, building materials, footballs, LEDs, and GPS. It discusses everything in a way that is very easy to understand, and it’s also very interesting. It’s definitely worth checking out, no matter what your age is or your level of experience with engineering and the sciences.
