We did it!

The exciting journey into STEM education continues this school year 2012-13!  Our pre-engineering class of home educated high school students has won a Lemelson-MIT InvenTeams prize for our proposed invention: a turbine for capturing shear wind energy from traffic flow, and novel wind tunnel for testing.

"Engineering the Future" is a group of fifteen students who meet at the ACTS home education co-operative in Charlottesville, VA.  ETF began brainstorming over a year ago and submitted their initial proposal to the LMIT foundation in April of 2012.  Today, October 17, LMIT announced that we were granted $10,000 to bring our invention to life.

ETF is the only home educated group to win the prize this year.  We thank Lemelson-MIT for their vision of supporting youth in their pursuit of STEM and invention.

Perhaps more than any other industry, field or time in history, during this time in computer hardware engineering there has been more advancement and evolution than ever before or anywhere else. You gotta see this for more details.
