to Help Teachers, Students Foster Invention and
Entrepreneurship; and the Launch of the " Famous
Women Engineers in History " Series
by Georgia C. Stelluto
Free, New E-Book from IEEE-USA for
Members Offers Fifth Book in Series to
Help Teachers, Students Foster Invention
and Entrepreneurship
Veteran educator Harry T. Roman's
exciting new e-books offer teachers,
students, and parents an educational
series on engineering topics of timely
interest for the classroom. Teachers
can use the activities in these books to
develop lesson plans or assignments
for students to engage them in the
classroom or via distance learning.
In the fifth volume of the series, " Engineering Activities for
the Classroom-Volume 5: Invention & Entrepreneurship, "
the author draws on his 50 years as an engineer, and
countless hours teaching students, as he focuses on
discussions and activities a teacher (or parent) can use
to help spark interest in and understanding of inventing,
innovation, and entrepreneurship with students. Roman
makes clear that he believes entrepreneurship and
inventing/innovation go hand-in-hand: Inventing should
lead to introducing new products into the marketplace.
This book gives teachers questions that can help guide
discussion around what inventions and patents are, and
why they are important; the need for finding markets
for inventions; important business terms; and the
fundamentals of launching a new product.
Activities include having students:
* Identify inventors past and present
* Hypothesize what characteristics set entrepreneurs apart
from other people in business, or in society
* Identify how the inventing process differs now than
in the time of the great U.S. inventor Thomas Edison
Roman suggests encouraging students to explore why there
is a need for patents; and how patents can help or hamper
innovation. He also suggests teachers ask students to
monitor their creativity, as well as identify if there are times
of the day when they are more creative than others, and
THE BRIDGE
theorize why their creative levels might fluctuate at
different times of the day.
The author of dozens of IEEE-USA e-books, Roman
understands the value of teaching, and especially of
teaching STEM to children. His love of engineering and an
extreme desire to ignite a passion for engineering in future
generations come through on every page, and in every
suggested activity.

IEEE-USA Launches 'Famous Women
Engineers in History' Series with
Hedy Lamarr
" Jack Kennedy always said to me,'' Hedy, get involved.
That's the secret of life. Try everything. Join everything.
Meet everybody. " - Hedy Lamarr
IEEE-USA E-Books' new series, " Famous
Women Engineers in History, " highlights
extraordinary women engineers
who helped shape and reshape the
world. Each one made remarkable
achievements during their lifetime that
still have an impact on the systems and
technology we use today. Book 1 in this
new series explores the life and glamorous career of Hedy
Lamarr, inventor extraordinaire and Hollywood star.
Author Paul Rosengren admits that when he agreed to
write the book, the only thing he knew about Hedy Lamarr
was that she was parodied in the movie, " Blazing Saddles, "
for which she sued director Mel Brooks.
Rosengren soon learned that Lamarr was a fascinating and
multifaceted inventor as well as one of the leading movie
stars of her day.
Lamarr was chosen to lead off the new series because her
inquisitiveness and ideas have had a profound impact on
