Remember Angus MacGyver? He was the super-secret spy who rocked a mullet and used a ream of duct tape to save the world on a weekly basis in the 80’s and early 90’s. To this day, popular culture calls it “MacGyvering” when someone saves the day under less-than-optimal circumstances, especially in an engineering context.
MacGyver inspired many in a generation of engineers to enter the field. Now it’s time to do it again—but this time, with a woman at the lead.
