I have submitted an entry for The Next Macgyver contest and perhaps you should, too.
This contest is to come up with the concept for a new television show featuring a quick-thinking engineer, as Angus Macgyver was–but this time the protagonist should be female. The show is intended to inspire more girls and young women to become engineers.
I’m sure there’s more money in successfully pitching an idea for a new series directly to Hollywood, but that isn’t the point. The point is to get the new series made and have it based on the best possible ideas.
The deadline to enter the contest is in the middle of this month. See if you can come up with a character and storylines better than mine. Women are still a pitifully small percentage of engineers. Let’s do something about it.
