During Raytheon's daylong "Engineering is Awesome" program Monday in southern Arizona, students got a chance to see science, engineering, math and technology principles at work in robots, missiles, and electron microscopes -- and Raytheon got a chance to encourage the students who could become its future engineers. High-school students from around the region took part in the event, held at Raytheon Missile Systems' airport plant, and many said they came away inspired to study engineering. "You get a really good idea of what you're looking forward to," said high-school senior Charlotte Mitchell.
