ENGins | The Tech News You Want
Your Engineering Inspiration for Sunday 29 March 2020

Our People section collates opinion pieces, interviews, and news stories focused on prominent figures in science and engineering.

By selecting the People tab from the ENGins front page, you can hear from Rupa Dachere, who started the non-profit CodeChix to get women into coding; read about the work of “materials alchemist” Lauren Bowker and her colour-changing fabrics; or learn from Chris Fuchs about QBism, an interpretation of quantum physics that is “no more mysterious than crossing the road”.

Simply set your customisation preferences to be delivered content strictly related to the topics you're interested in, or turn them off (using the switch at the top of the page) to see everything.

Very best,
