Good job Google

Google celebrates National Engineers Week and Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day by inviting hundred of middle school girls to their office to spend the day with engineers.

"We hope these girls get a real-life sense of what it's like to work here, and more important, that we've piqued their interests and ultimately help steer them toward future careers in math, science and engineering." link

I checked Elsevier, CSA, Thomson and our (Ei) websites and there is no mention of National Engineers Week. As we are serving engineering community, I think we should be active in this Week and sponsor the National Engineers Week Foundation which was founded by National Scociety of Professional Engineers in 1951.

Agree with Christina, it would be great to see Ei have a presence, and a strong one, in national engineering organizations, including ones outside of the USA. Go for it, Rafael, see what you can do to embed Ei into celebrations like National Engineers Week. - Randy
