National Tortilla Chip Day honors the invention of Rebecca Webb Carranza. In the 1940s she cut up and fried some tortilla rejects, engineering a new crunchy treat.
Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2011. The "10 for 10" campaign, which runs for 10 weeks, is intended to inspire 10,000 10-year-old girls to consider a career in engineering.
The Holiday Whiz best advice: Encourage the girls in your life (including yourself, if you're female) to build a structure out of tortilla chips, a la a house of cards. Share your pics!
