Voices of Innovation wants to hear your stories of engineering ingenuity and the significant role that engineers play in society, and they want to broadcast it over the radio. You might realize how exciting engineering can be, but everyone else out there may not. Voices of Innovation broadcasts two-minute stories each weekday over public and commercial radio stations, tapping into the imagination of the engineer.
