Fitch Even partner Steven G. Parmelee was a presenter at the Northern Illinois University-Enhancing Engineering Pathways (NIU-EEP) Saturday Engineering Workshop held on April 20, 2013, at the NIU Naperville campus, attended by over 80 Chicago-area middle-school girls and their high-school mentors. Steve’s presentation, “Inventing Happens to Everyone,” covered the basics of both the concept of innovation and the patent system and emphasized that creativity knows no boundaries with respect to age or gender.
NIU-EEP is a program funded by the Motorola Foundation to establish a sustainable pathway to the field of engineering for middle- and high-school girls. Representatives of the NIU College of Engineering and Engineering Technology, the Collegiate section of the Society of Women Engineers, the Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana Council, and the Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois have worked together to develop this ongoing initiative to introduce engineering to participating Senior Girl Scouts and Cadettes.
