Remember Engineers Week? Remember the 400 plus 8th graders who swarmed campus with their neon green shirts and left with an idea of how exciting it is to both go to college and study engineering?
Well, if you need a reminder of what ENSPIRE is all about, check out the two minute video embedded below. It's a student-run event organized by TESC the Triton Engineering Student Council. Read the story at the Jacobs School site.
I have also listed all the Jacobs School web stories that are focused on undergrads. Check it out, and send me links to other interesting projects Jacobs School undergrads are involved in both inside and outside the classroom.

The High Performance Wireless Research and Education Network (HPWREN) is a National Science Foundation funded network research project, which also functions as a collaborative cyberinfrastructure on research, education, and first responder activities.
HPWREN has a consistent stream of interesting news updates available online (or you can sign up to get them via email).
The HPWREN 2008 summary video is here.
The HPWREN project includes creating, demonstrating, and evaluating a non-commercial, prototype, high-performance, wide-area, wireless network in San Diego, Riverside, and Imperial counties. The network includes backbone nodes at the UC San Diego and San Diego State University campuses, and a number of "hard to reach" areas in remote environments.
