A big CONGRATS to the Tufts chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers, whose inspirational video (featured on Tufts Jumble a few weeks ago) won national recognition!
The organization sponsoring the “Engineers Make a World of Difference” competition, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE),announced the Tufts victory on their website.
Kristen Ford, of Tufts, a human factors engineering major, and vice president of the university’s National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), observed that the NSBE chapter’s entry should encourage teens ‘to dream bigger, reach higher and achieve more.’
IEEE awarded $1,500 to the Tufts group best in content and message, reinforcing that engineers and technical professionals are creative people who seek to make life better for all.
For another look at the video, we’ve posted it again below.
