This looks like a very interesting read - I am on my way to Amazon now (Click Click). I think it will really fascinate my teenage son and engineer husband too. I appreciated the quote:

Early on, Kuprenas also wanted to be an artist. "It might seem odd, but in both professions you use your imagination and create new things," he said.

I believe engineering is extremely creative - that is one of the most fun aspects of it...

This is great stuff and I'd love to read this book. The story about the soldiers on the bridge is particularly intriguing. About thirty years ago, there was a similar story about a Big Ten football stadium that had to be beefed up because students in the upper deck would sway back and forth to a cheer that happened to be very close to the the natural frequency of the structure.

What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.

The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
