Owen Brown Middle School's students and their engineering education partners from Westinghouse Electronic Systems, Steve Hise, Sharon Kramer and Ron Rowe, are putting their skills to a test today at 2:30 p.m., building "Tinker Toy" Space Towers.

Students design and "manufacture" a bridge calculating the cost, time and height, plus adjusted and final profit.

Westinghouse has been an industry partner of the school for three years. This year's outreach program, "Discover E," is being presented by 80 engineers in Central Maryland elementary, middle and high school classrooms.

At Owen Brown, the Westinghouse engineers work with the students of science teachers Tim Jean and Jeanne Robinson and the after-school MESA (Mathematics, Engineering, and Science Achievement) program.

During an April 20 program, the students viewed a "Bikes" video, which identified engineering with bicycles. At the conclusion of the event, Mr. Hise presented the school with a $1,000 check from Westinghouse. Nine other Howard County schools are among the 50 schools receiving identical checks.

"Our goal is to demonstrate to youngsters how science, math and engineering relate to the world around them and why their studies are so important," said Earl King, manager of human resources services and Discover E coordinator. "Through these classroom presentations, students will discover that engineers are the people who turn ideas into reality."
