So, many stars I have either met or know of this year... not sure where to begin.

I still may have to nominate myself!

Lauren, I think this is one of the best things Design News Magazine does on an annual basis.  As I recall, last year the nominees were extraordinary with very interesting bios and areas of experience.  It is absolutely appropriate engineering talent be recognized for work accomplished.   The only "downer" as I recall relative to last year, was the absence of lady engineers.  Let's hope this year we see one or two or three.

I think last years winner would be very offended by your "absence of lady engineers" remark!!

How so???? I think one of the efforts needed in our country today is promotion of the fact that the STEM professions are available to everyone if they have the motivation to undertake the course work and spend time in the profession. When I attended my university back in the early '60s, we had one lady engineering student.  She was a brilliant student but left for reasons unknown to us at the time. We later found out she felt somewhat alone and had great difficulties within study groups.  She told the wife of one of my friends she felt intimidated without another female in the mechanical engineering department.  She moved into the school of business, graduated and found a job as business manager in a consulting engineering firm. She would have made an excellent engineer.    I think it's definitely different now (or hope so) at any rate.  I certainly meant to offend no one with my comments and hope they were taken in the manner I just described.

In case you hadn't noticed, a lady engineer won the thing last year, and the year before.

As everyone has already mentioned, it's a very healthy event. I will promote this among my friend engineers, so that we can get more participation. The more the people participate, the more we learn about unique and innovative projects.

@bobjengr: Mechanical engineering was hugely unpopular then, and even more so for a girl, whose ambitions would mainly be for being a corporate business class woman. The man to woman ratio in engineering colleges/universities/companies are not equal, and still engineering is a hugely unpopular stream for girls.

Applicable worldwide?

Is this applicable for engineers worldwide or just in USA? I think the community would grow amazingly fast if it is worldwide based, and lots of other research projects would be known. The only problem is that most engineers working for a company wouldn't have research models in their schedules, because they are time bound. I think this is a great place for independent engineers who work for an university.

I believe you are correct, AnandY. In many engineering schools, the percentage of female students is still around 15%.
