I had an email today pointing me to this site (http://www.tryengineering.org/home.php) which is a joint project between IBM (I think they are in the computer business somehow) and the IEEE (of which I am a member). The site is called Try Engineering and it has resources for teachers and students who are interested in engineering. It may be worth a look.

One thing I found interesting was a number of “day in the life” articles about different engineers in different engineering fields. And of course there is a computer engineer story there.
