Don't "fit the ‘cookie-cutter mold’ of what people believe engineers ‘should look like?’" The ‪#‎ILookLikeAnEngineer‬ movement seeks to break down industry stereotypes.
People tired of sexism in the tech industry blanket Twitter with photos of what engineers really look like.

"Not far from Thomas Edison’s famed Menlo Park lab, the students of Brooklyn Technical High School’s 'ASCE Club' enjoyed an Edison moment of their own this spring:" powering an LED light bulb from a model hydroelectric dam. Read their story.

Researchers have developed a new test chamber that allows engineers to simulate "what happens to soil underground during the installation of piles and other structural elements." Read about the tool's implications!
A test chamber developed at Purdue University allows engineers to simulate precisely what happens to soil underground during the installation of piles and other structural elements, a research tool for improving construction of everything from buildings and bridges to offshore wind turbines.

U.S. infrastructure is facing big challenges, but congested roadways and overflowing sewers are only half the story. From self-healing asphalt to the world's largest surge barrier, here are the top infrastructure trends and projects changing the way we design, plan, and build projects: http://ascegamechangers.org/. What are you favorite ‪#‎GameChangers‬?

A recent traffic improvement project in South Carolina had to "account for significant geotechnical shortcomings to enable the installation of a 1,250 ft long bridge -- the key step in replacing a busy at-grade intersection with a grade-separated interchange:" http://ow.ly/QxFls.

This self-healing concrete is "designed to decrease the amount of new concrete produced and lower maintenance and repair costs for city officials, building owners and homeowners." Read about the invention.
The green technology embeds self-activating bacteria into concrete to make it self-healing, but will it win over a risk-averse construction industry?
