In honor of International Women's Day, I'm sharing my circle of sciencey/techy/geeky women who are also active G+ users. :) Some are scientists, programmers, engineers, science writers, math lovers, lovable geeks and nerds... and all of them will contribute some great posts to your stream.

I first shared this circle to celebrate Ada Lovelace Day, and it has grown a bit, but I know it's missing a lot of people! So please shout out who else I should add!

Physicists say they have found a bump in their data that might be the Higgs boson, a hypothesized particle that is responsible for endowing other elementary particles with mass.

Neat!
 
So apparently discovering is making an engineering contest-reality show?

http://pilgrimstudios.com/casting/topengineer/

This was sent my way earlier, a request for engineers to apply to a show called "*Top Engineer*".

From the casting site itself:
We are looking for visual effects experts, accomplished home shop machinists, contractors and engineers with backgrounds in electrical, civil, structural or mechanical engineering. No, you don’t need to have an engineering degree to compete on this show, but you MUST be able to design, build, test and integrate an idea into a final product that WORKS.

I was curious about this, and the casting director let me pester her for with a few questions:

Time commitment? A few days in April for casting and about a month for filming (May)

Structure? The casting director didn't know for sure but she said it would probably be a mixture of games and real-world problems.

Drama? She said something to the effect of "obviously drama is good for TV, but this is Discovery, not Jersey Shore" (haha, fair enough)

What is this mysterious prize, how much are we talking here? She wouldn't tell me in detail (aww) but she did say it would be "worth competing for".

So there you go, engineering reality show in the pipeline. I'm a fan of Discovery's other shows, and while reality TV leaves things to be desired, in my opinion the more people who know about engineering as a possible career-path the better.
