    Welcome to the second edition of the Altium On Track newsletter. This month we feature a very special PCB designer, Cherie Litson, who is a CID and CID+ Master Trainer. We also take you inside the FIRST Robotics Competition and Team Mechanical Mayhem 1519. We’ve also launched a new monthly On Track educational video series which offers design tips and tricks. As usual, there’s plenty of Brain Food and a list of upcoming electronics conferences and events. Your feedback and suggestions are always welcome. Enjoy!

    Spotlighting Exceptional Women PCB Designers
     
    Cherie Litson is an accomplished BSEE and Master Instructor for CID and CID+ training at Eptac. She has enjoyed a long career as a PCB design professional and now spends her days training and certifying other designers. Here she shares how she became a designer, her thoughts on differences between men and women in their business approach, and what advice she would offer to others considering a PCB design profession.
     
     
    Maker Space
    Celebrating Makers and their Cool Stuff
     
    Over 25 years ago, FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) founder and prolific inventor, Dean Kamen, envisioned a high school robotics competition that rivaled the energy and excitement of any major league sporting event. An event that would turn science students into superstars and infect them with an unshakeable passion for STEM activities and careers. In this promotional FIRST video, Morgan Freeman articulates the vision, value, and power of this amazing global organization. Read here about Altium’s own Chris Jennings' history with FRC and the team he coaches, Mechanical Mayhem 1519, who recently won a coveted spot in the upcoming World Championships.
