Londonderry Inventioneers strike a deal during Shark Tank appearance

Londonderry Inventioneers strike a deal during Shark Tank appearance | Made Different | Scoop.it

LONDONDERRY - When the ABC television show "Shark Tank" premiered in summer 2009, six teenage engineers were watching and dreaming from their Londonderry living rooms.

"We'd often joke about it, about what we'd do if we got a chance to be on the show," said Tristan "T.J." Evarts, 17, one of the founding members of the Inventioneers. The group is a FIRST Lego League team whose award-winning invention, the SMART Wheel, is due to go into production later this year.

How Do Engineers Use Social Media? [INFOGRAPHIC] - AllTwitter | Made Different | Scoop.it

Did you know that a recent study revealed that 61 percent of engineers use social media for work-related activities? Facebook is, as usual, the platform of choice, with more than two-thirds (67 percent) of engineers favouring that channel, ahead of LinkedIn (43 percent), Google+ (33 percent) and Twitter (22 percent). Learning is cited as the main reason for using social media, and 60 percent of engineers use these tools to help find new products or solutions.
