National Engineering Week

It's National Engineering Week here in Canada this week. The Ontario Engineering Week site is here. There was a snazzy insert in one of the national newspapers (The Globe and Mail) last week with stories on building disaster-proof houses, alternative fuels, women in engineering and others. The insert isn't online yet, but the last two year's editions are completely online here, featuring articles on Engineers Without Borders, accrediting newcomers, Mission to Mars and many others.

Update: The 2006 newspaper supplement is now online. A nice quote from the article on women in engineering: "Engineering is a caring profession, that is very much the reality, but people don't always see that initially."
