1 Mind Sport (September 2016)

Here’s what we know about Tremont, Illinois: It’s a small village in Tazewell County, (population 2,400+), holds an annual summer turkey festival (quite popular) and the courthouse is a famous historic site where politician James Shields challenged an “up-and-coming” lawyer named Abraham Lincoln to a duel with cavalry broad swords (they showed up, but the duel never materialized). In 2016, you can add FIRST Robotics Competition World Champion to the village’s rather eccentric list of accomplishments.

2 You Go, Goldie Girl (June 2013)

New doll and toy set geared for inspiring young engineering misses -- not misters.

3 Kids Love Technology (October 2016)

Kate, a sophomore studying engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, has a genuine interest in manufacturing, so it was natural that she attend IMTS. But the other three? My kids? Well, let’s just say that their interests lie elsewhere. Matt, also a sophomore, is studying business at UW-Platteville. Emily, a sophomore in high school, wants to join the Peace Corps. Renee, an eighth grader, wants to be a surgeon.

4 Hands-On Hydraulics and Pneumatics (February 2017)

Action Challenge Introduces Students to Fluid Power Industry in the latest STEM educational effort from the National Fluid Power Association.

5 Battle Bots - Victorian Edition (April 2017)

Airships, gears, robots, steam power and buzzer-beating theatrics highlight the 2017 FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition known as FIRST Steamworks.

6 Showing Up Is Half the Battle (March 2017)

For the past several months, I've been sneaking away from work early every Thursday afternoon to coach my daughter's Science Olympiad team. Those of you who read this column regularly know that I'm a supporter of STEM education programs, and I've encouraged you to participate in those programs wherever possible.

7 Encouragement and Enthusiasm (December 2014)

In the Stott household, we love math. Well, maybe not everyone in my household loves it equally, but since they were in kindergarten, whenever one of my children asked me for help with math homework, my reply has been an instant and cheerful “We love math!”

8 Girls Love Science (April 2015)

Hi. My name is Renee. I’m 12. You might remember me from about a year ago, when my dad wrote about me and the home-made motor project we did together (“Make the Connection,” February 2014).

9 Das (Human) Kapital (August 2014)

Columnist Brian Langenberg provides a current outlook update, key findings from a recent energy sector conference, and takes another look at education and employment.

10 Start, Design and Market Your Engines (December 2009)

Honeywell and SAE team up for a unique middle school initiative.

11 Buying In to Commodity Buyers (October 2013)

The challenge facing OEM procurement organizations is that the organizations themselves need improving before they can be proficient in a cost reduction program.

12 Carnage and Mayhem 101 (June 2011)

What did you learn in school today? This typical parental inquiry is met with several responses but rarely followed with, “The complete and total annihilation of robotic machines in a no-holds-barred death match.”

13 Train to Maintain (April 2014)

Is industrial maintenance another lost art, or is there hope that we can train the next generation of maintenance professionals?

14 Good Purchasing Personnel Are a Priceless Investment (March 2014)

Seems simple enough doesn't it? It is most decidedly not. Indeed, one can make the case that--aside from uppermost management (or ownership)-- no one else in a heavy/high-tech manufacturing concern has more ownership of the company's everyday needs and necessities than the purchasing department.

15 Make the Connection (February 2014)

Recently I had a disturbing conversation with a colleague here at the office. During the conversation, it became clear to me that my co-worker -- a really intelligent guy whom I respect a lot -- had no idea how even the most simple electric motor works.

16 Development of an Educational Engineering Workshop on Electric Vehicle and Motor Technology (June 2010)

This paper describes the development of an educational program centered on electric motor and electric vehicle technology at the MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Edgerton Center.

17 He Shoots, He Scores! (April 2016)

There’s nothing quite as satisfying as scoring a goal. Here at Power Transmission Engineering, our goal is to provide you with as much relevant educational and technical material as possible, and every issue we strive to cover the subjects of power transmission and motion control from as many different angles as possible, so that no matter your job title, and no matter your industry, if gears, bearings, motors and related components are important to you, we’ve got you covered.

18 The American Industrial Renaissance (December 2014)

At SKF, we believe in the longterm development of the U.S. industrial economy. The reindustrialization is supported by a strong university-based research network, a competitive workforce and energy supply from domestic energy resources. However, there are still challenges, particularly regarding the availability of skilled labor. Business, education and governments have a responsibility to work together to ensure this is not the bottleneck in U.S. industrial development. I am particularly pleased with and support the work the National Association of Manufacturers is doing in this area.

19 Fluid Power Free-for-All (February 2014)

IFPE offers the right balance of technology and education.

20 PTRA Looks to the Future (February 2010)

Southern hospitality may not be the focus, but the Power-Motion Technology Representatives Association (PTRA) will experience just that and more at its 38th annual conference in Charleston, SC. Members will explore the theme of “Impacting the Future” through educational presentations and amidst networking opportunities, intimate social events and the annual golf tournament.
