Galt High School sophomore D.J. Finkes and junior Sterling Shells, both 16, sit huddled over a circuit board trying to get a light to blink at the right time.

To the average person, this painstakingly slow task might seem boring, but the boys couldn't be more enthralled. So enthralled, in fact, that they don't immediately leave when the bell rings.

    I have a personal theory, which I admit I have not had the time to actually research. My guess is that the reason we have fewer kids in engineering today is that we have made law so lucrative that they are attracted there. What would happen if we were to put some kind of cap on lawyers' fees? (Not the awards to the plaintiff, just the rumineration. Make it less obscenely lucrative.) I bet we would start to see more scientists and engineers!
