Check out the latest Mathcad blog post, "ASEE San Antonio 2012: Who knew slot cars would be the biggest thing on the show floor?" written by Ned Daniels, PTC's Education Business Development Manager for Mathcad in North America. In this post Ned explores some of the highlights at ASEE in San Antonio, specifically the excitement around the presence of a NASCAR racecar and a Scalextric slot car race track. Here is an excerpt:
"Most engineers like things that move and change, and they often dedicate their life to solving problems. This comes to surface whether they are out having fun, or working with students (this can be fun). ASEE is a perfect example of why engineers are so important. These are the people who are out there, every day, challenging the misconception that “math is hard, and science is boring.” If you can engage a young person with slot cars, like we did, and help them see what their time would equate to if they were a real NASCAR driver, their minds begin to open up to new possibilities."
