Normally I never promote commercial ventures on NorthstarNerd.Org, but how can I resist the personal request recently emailed to me from the Discovery Channel. They are working upon a new program named "Top Engineer", and they want you! The creation of television programming which does not assume we are all brain dead needs to be encouraged (yes, I like the Discovery Channel).
Quoting from their "casting" web site: (application deadline is March 7, 2012)
The Discovery Channel is looking for America’s most creative and daring techies, machinists, inventors and engineers to design, build, and BLAST their way to a Grand Prize on their new competition TV show TOP ENGINEER.
A handful of lucky men and women will be chosen to take on exciting challenges from various engineering fields at the state-of-the-art WET design facilities (www.wetdesign.com) in California.
No, you don’t need to have an engineering degree to compete on this show, but you MUST be able to design, build, test and integrate an idea into a final product that WORKS.
I have attached their pdf file to this post if you want more information. As a fyi, I did not receive any pay, or gifts in kind to promote Top Engineer. NorthstarNerd.Org never takes any pay from vendors, or accepts advertisements.
