Aviation Week to Announce Twenty20s Nov. 11

Still, in preparing for the story, you couldn’t help but be impressed by the creativity of these future innovators and inventors, whether it’s the “epic welcome” at Georgia Institute of Technology’s freshman convocation (first video below) or the complex system developed by Purdue University engineering students – to pour a soft drink (second video below).
