Woman once told she would never succeed in engineering

Abstract:
In tenth grade, Andrea Hill's algebra II trigonometry teacher told her in front of her entire class that she was not “smart enough” to attain her dream - to be an engineer. ... A graduate in 2003, the materials science and engineering major's name has since appeared on some 20 technical papers and five patents in the last 30 months. Two of the patents are with her employer, NanoSonic, Inc., a nanotechnology company spun off from an electrical engineering research center at Virginia Tech. The remaining three are joint ventures between NanoSonic and a major corporate commercial partner, a billion-plus dollar company. The patents are concerned with a new process for manufacturing in nanotechnology and a novel, groundbreaking material called Metal Rubber(TM).
