I'll be at InventTeams this week

I'll be at the InventTeams event at MIT today. Here's a very cool electric motorcycle developed by high school students from Saint Thomas Academy in Mendota Heights. Looks great! I'll be meeting with them and other teams over the next few days. Articles: LINK and LINK

(Pet peeve: why is it that when student teams get describe, so often their NAMES are left out and it's just their school, as in the article linked above, or their professor? Our expectations of what young people can accomplish may be rising but it's vestiages of Old School like this that bug me!)

(And how do you tell that a faculty/student team isn't ready to really be a venture yet? When the students don't call the professor by the first name. Or am I wrong on that??)
