National Engineers Week: The Week That Is...

It's National Engineers Week—here’s a look at three innovators in the field who were honored by Drexel with the Science and Engineering Award: Portia Isaacson, a female pioneer in the computer industry; Jacques Piccard, a Swiss oceanographer whose father Auguste Piccard was the inventor of the first bathyscaph FNRS-2; and Wernher von Braun, a NASA aerospace engineer who helped to land the first man on the moon with Apollo 11!

If you didn't have the chance to read Martha Cornog's blog posts 2 years ago, then you'll want to check out these amazing individuals who have helped to impact our world with their revolutionary contributions.
