Celebrate Engineering Ingenuity (CEI) Day 19-February-2017
- Photo – James Imanian, Scott Heyman and Bailey Ulferts (hidden) help visitors get buggy!
- Short Video – And the bug flies, or at least buzzes around! Best of all, the visitors have learned a new skill–how to solder!!!
- One visitor asked if someone would show him how to solder the lead to the rear-window heater in his car, which had been ripped away by an over-eager child. It was tempting, but the thought of offering to apply a hot soldering iron to a cold $600 piece of glass was more that the ‘Learn to Solder’ program was intended to do! (Any takers?)

IEEE*USA’s Women in Engineering Book Series
(This Section Under Construction. Feel free to poke around; but, please bear with us as to layout and organization. Or pitch in, and give us a hand! You will be amazed at what you will learn just gathering and organizing this material!)
- eBook: Women in Engineering Compilation Volume 1: Books 1-4
BY NITA PATEL, MARIA VLACHOPOULOU, SHERRY J. GILLESPIE, PH.D., and JACQUELYN K. NAGEL, PH.D. — The first four of IEEE-USA’s award-winning Women in Engineering E-Books are now available in a specially priced first compilation volume. Introduced in 2014, the WIE e-book series has a distinct purpose: to help narrow the gender gap between the numbers of men and women in engineering, by providing the stories of female role models at various phases of their careers. Except for the first volume, which is an overview of women in STEM occupations, each book is a first-hand account of how a notable contemporary woman engineer built her career.

- eBook: Women in Engineering – Book 11: Quietly, Clearly and Authoritatively
- eBook: Women in Engineering – Book 12: Its Not A Career Path. Its An Obstacle Course
BY LISA SCHOEDEL — The twelfth and latest volume in the award-winning IEEE-USA Women in Engineering (WIE) e-book series – It’s Not a Career Path – It’s an Obstacle Course!, by Lisa Schoedel, cuts across her career path in three male-dominated industries: defense, oil and law. Schoedel readily admits that she did not carefully plan her vocation, stumbling upon earlier jobs with little thought or consideration. WIE Book 12 reflects the author’s pragmatism and sense of humor. Her work is brimming with anecdotes that explain why she made many of her career choices, and the lessons she learned along the way.
- eBook: Women in Engineering Compilation Volume 4: Books 13-16
- Women in Engineering – Book 17: Reinventing Myself – Inspiration, Perspiration and Innovation
- AUTHOR: GEETIKA TANDON — Geetika Tandon’s story is not about grand inventions; or making it to the top to win the grand prize. In this short autobiography, she shares the aspects of her life that shaped the road she has traveled, and the person she has become. Tandon’s hope is to inspire more women to push their lives just one step further — despite the odds — and add their imprints to science and technology.
- By Susan Delafuente (Book 13); Monique Morrow (Book 14); Rowena Track (Book 15); Nathalie Gosset (Book 16)Each woman in this e-book, as in all of the IEEE-USA Women in Engineering e-books, is remarkable in her own way. Perhaps these examples of creativity and persistence in engineering are really those of diversity, and inclusion of mindsets that help define the society we live in. These outstanding women are certainly examples to follow–for both men and women–along the path to becoming current and future engineers and technologists. The narratives inspire one to take the roads less followed, only dreamt of, and never acted upon–no matter one’s gender, ethnic background, or sexuality.
- IEEE-USA has conducted its annual salary survey of U.S. IEEE members since 1972. This special industry report summarizes salary data for female IEEE members. Based on salary data collected for the IEEE-USA Salary and Benefits Survey Report – 2017 Edition.

The contents of the prior WIE Website http://ewh.ieee.org/r3/richmond/wie/ is captured below and presently undergoing edit — please bear with us as we transition from the past to the present, from the ewh.ieee.org environment to the sites.ieee.org one. We don’t want to lose the good work of our predecessors, so the captured elements have been converted to WordPress format and are ready for edit, reference or archive. Beware, some of this material includes ‘hot-links’ which may render an error as the upgrade takes place. However, the contents of those broken links has been captured in the additional pages below–so nothing is lost. We are looking for a Webmaster, so if you have an inkling for such a responsibility adventure, please let us know. We learned it ‘on-the-fly’, and now it is ready for a more professional presentation.
