Teachers Gert Steinthaler of Austria, David Legere of Maine, Willie Ho of Hong Kong and Ellen Carr of Delaware work on a product design and development problem in which they had to design a heating system for residents of the "deltoid plane." They were among the 70 participants (28 from other countries, including Israel, Austria, Argentina, Norway, the West Indies and Lebanon) in the 14th annual Science and Engineering Program for Teachers held at MIT in June. The week-long program featured lectures by 25 MIT faculty members from biology, chemistry, physics, math, materials science and engineering on topics ranging from cures for brain tumors to the future of nuclear physics. On the lighter side, one lecture involved a demonstration on true colors of the rainbow by Walter Lewin, professor of physics. Participants also went to a Red Sox game and local museums.
