My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find many of your post's to be just what I'm looking for. Does one offer guest writers to write content for you personally? I wouldn't mind writing a post or elaborating on a lot of the subjects you write in relation to here. Again, awesome site!

@mchipguru, thanks for the links. I think these types of efforts are critical to our success. I'm in California and school budgets are tight so "Low cost, no cost" goes a long way. More importantly, it sems like middle school is where some kids, especially girls, start to lose steam around STEM. I'm all for anything that keeps the excitement alive.

IEEE USA has a group that supports STEM with projects, people, and limited funding.

http://www.ieeeusa.org/

http://www.ieeeusa.org/volunteers/committees/pec/index.html

http://www.tryengineering.org/

There are resources all across the country available for the asking. I personally have created clubs at middle schools and done programs aligned to the curriculum frameworks. One project was integrating low cost / no cost engineering in the classroom to fit in with subjects being mandated. The idea is to make the subject come alive for the students while covering all the details, without overwelming the teacher. If a teacher asks we try to help.

@Hailey: Finance for medicine is much facsile as compare to other branches like engineering and others. Best way is to borrow it from bank with backup insurance.

Once she finishes study - paying back loan money is easy - reason, they earn so much more.

Best wishes to your daughter to become wonderful doctor and serve people.

@_HM, your perspective is interesting. I think there are big cultural differences (in addition to economic) and also geographic (in that in some places schools are more or less available). I have a daughter going to college next year--and she hopes to study medicine. It's been a daunting process to figure out where the money is: grants, scholarships, work study, etc. You are absolutely right that getting kids educated takes a signifigant investment in time and attention from the parents. I've never filled out so many forms in my life!

"Why do you feel the cash flow is secondary? I feel that cash flow resource is a mist since that can make a huge difference. Business processes depend heavily on the cash flow"

Nimantha, I feel academic-industrial collaborations are more important than cash flow. Sharing the knowledge and resource are important than funding.

@Adeniji:

I have also learned that in most culture there is adage for this.

Yes, I have observed this very closely. This is true as per 80/20 rule.

@ Hailey, I consider what your brother is doing as something amazing, -explaining something that seems so complex and breaks it down for the generation next to understand.

@_HM Good point, but can this be possible for a large percentage of parents?
