“The Next MacGyver” to be female? #NextMacGyver

This is not necessarily within our usual sphere of influence, but then we do have students leaving the country and migrating to the United States. Thus you might want to know about this fun call for participation in a crowdsourced project: The Next MacGyver. Specifically, the project is calling on engineers to contribute to a TV show script in which the main hero will indeed be a heroine, a female engineer, for a new show like the original MacGyver. This is part of the U.S. government’s effort to bolster female participation in engineering degree programs.
