D.H. I have worked with a few female engineers over the years and each of them was well above average in thier engineering skills. So perhaps they were more motivated than most to learn as much as possible.

@William yes agreed that hard work does pay off and the acheivments of Justine are just remarkable . Few years back it was a myth that females were not considered to be that much technical person but now this assumption is comming to an end and yes Justine is the live example for all her accomplisgments and professionalism.

MrDon, hard work usually does pay off, especially hard work learning. I have made an effort to continue learning throughout my engineering career, and it has been useful. How many other electronic engineers can domechanical designs as well, run the large machineshop tools such as a lathe and a mill, design pneumatic circuits, and then be able to adequately supervise those doing whatever other work needs to be done. So there is a good bit of value in adding to what an individual knows and understands. Not all managers are aware of that, but it certainly helps to be able to successfully acomplish whatever goals one is given.

You bring it some very valid points regarding next's year competition descriptions and the bar being raised. I noticed every Capstone I've participating in at ITT Technical Institutes School of Electronics, the caliber of projects created by the students every quarter seems to raise the bar in technical acumen and fabrication quality. I believe next's years Rising Star candidates will definitely come close or exceeds Justine's impressive engineering background and accomplishments because of the low cost-sophisticated engineering tools available to them.

78RPM,

I agree. Justine Haupt is definitely changing the future by inventing it. She is definitely an inspiration to all of us especially women in engineering and technology. I will definitely be sharing this article with my students enrolled in my electronics technology classes I teach at Lawrence County Center of Technology. I hope my female students can see how impressive Justine's career has been and try to create such a path for themselves.

jnissen,

I agree. In all the electronics technology courses I teach at both Lawrence County Center of Technology and ITT Technical Institute I constantly tell my students that hardwork does payoff. This article is an example of the benefits of perfoming such works.  Yes, congratulations is inorder and keep up the great work!!!

My jaw kept dropping as I read the list of this star's accomplishments.  Athletes and pop music stars do not deserve one tenth the recognition that Justine Haupt does.  I am amazed at the breadth of accomplishment she has attained.  It was Andrew Morris, frequent Gadget Freak contributor who directed me to this article.  She illustrates the concept that if you want to predict the future, then invent it.  I define power as the ability to achieve purpose.  This young woman certainly has a lot of power to change the world.

Yes congratulations! As the father of several young ladies who are interested in the sciences I will have to show this article to them for inspiration. Good to see an example of what hard work and talent can produce. Congrats again and keep up the good work.

Justine Haupt si certainly a rising star based on the description in the posting. Very good selecting, and very little chance for argument, that is certain.

But what a "tough act to follow", with the bar set so high the search for next year's selection will be a real challenge. 

Some of her creations sound interesting, is there any chance that we might get a more detailed description of them some time in the future?
