Sounds like a golden opportunity +Wayne Sutton
With all of the Angel Networks in Dallas none of them are doing anything like this.
I might have to find time and start one.

Wow: "Our system of higher education produces only one STEM graduate for every 2.5 job openings.  The numbers are even worse for women, who earn just 18% of computer science degrees.  While there are over 5 million STEM job postings each year, fewer engineering degrees are awarded today than in the early 1980s."
