Budding Engineers Say YES to Hands-on Classes in Summer

That would be key when her team's tower took its turn on the earthquake machine to see how much shaking it could stand.

That was just one way that the 40 students found to ensure that the small, loosely placed sphere stayed in place.

WASHINGTON, DC -- Congressman Eliot L. Engel issued the following statement:

“One year ago today a heinous demonstration of racial hate turned violent, leaving one young woman dead and a nation reeling. In the year since that infamous day, we have seen no clear attempt by this President to denounce those responsible for the horror in Charlottesville, or bring our country together.
