We have been working on a student outreach website, Discover Engineering in Greater Philadelphia, with the assistance of an in-kind grant from IBM. We could use your help with providing interesting facts about engineering for the "Did You Know?" block on the home page. This could be a "this day in history" item or it could be just some simple fact about any branch of engineering or something related to engineering. Some samples that we currently have are:
Preferably, the items would relate to the Greater Philadelphia area, but could certainly include major national and international items. We can include links to offsite websites for additional information, but do want to keep the content on our site brief. The information should be of interest to the general public, particularly students. We can also include images, but we need to be sure that they are either in the public domain or you can give us the rights to the image. If you send an image, please send the Image Release Form.
If you have such items, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. As we need to be careful that we are presenting facts, we ask that you provide a reliable source for the information.
