I recently came across PRISM, a magazine published by American Society for Engineering Education. I was very interested by the content.
My favorite section is First Look which reports on recent innovations and “breakthroughs” in the world of industry and research institutions. Each story was written in non-technical language and lends a space to be explored further.
If you haven’t found an appropriate topic for your term paper in one of the science or engineering courses, you may want to read these briefings.
