      Katie Maass is not only an extraordinary student, she is also very committed to education. She and other chemical engineering students participated in the Women in Science event at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in 2010. They attracted many visitors to their booth in this event which inspires young women to look into science careers. I wish Katie the best in her future endeavors. Laurel Trevino, Education, Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center.

      There is a great difference in the curriculum content now and when I worked as a teacher. I would suggest that more time and effort be made in adopting text books that are thorough in content coverage and connect with future studies of the same subject. Math is one content in great question. Laws are being passed directed at teachers who are using their materials as printed, and rating them as bad educators. Please evaluate the texts being used to pull the whole study together, so more engineers will become proficient in the study and use of math. There is no substitute to teaching the number combinations in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. This is a must for basic algebra. Then application steps help them to use those tools in application to the world situations.

      I think there is a vast difference between the educational level and facilities of developed and developing nations.Most of the schools in zimbabwe are facing problems related to staff, and basic infrastructure.
