****Everyone is welcome to this chat, this is a resource the RCU is
offering to the community -please note that anyone who wants to go to the chat will need to join the Yahoo Group, as the chat client is only accessible
through the Yahoo Group at this time. ****

We hope you all will join us! Stay tune for a brief bio of this incredible lady.

If you are new to the RCU Yahoo! Group - PLEASE try to log into the
chat sometime in the next three days - we find that people sometimes
need to pull down an applet or modify their firewall settings in
order to participate. You don’t want to be doing that while the chat
is going on.

As said earlier we would be having a guest speaker on our chat and here is a short bio on our guest speaker Gwen Donahue:
Ms. Donahue went to the University of Massachusetts – Lowell for Chemical
Engineering and to Middlesex Community College for Hazardous
Materials Management. She started her career at Dupont-New England
Nuclear working as a technician for cancer research in the Immuno-
pharmaceutical research and Development department. From there she
worked at MIT Lincoln Laboratory and then MIT (campus) working on
semiconductor and MEMS (Micro-Electrical-Mechanical Systems) devices;
and helped the graduate students at MIT with processing issues and
equipment related problems. Ms. Donahue worked on various projects such as
Drug Delivery devices, Micro-Engines (Rockets, Pumps and Generators)
and built a few charged-coupled devices (CCD’s) that were installed
in several satellites. She also worked on Night-vision technology in
the early 90’s. Recently she took a job at MicroCHIPS, INC. as a
MEMS Engineer building drug delivery devices and does most of her
research at MIT. When Ms. Donahue is not working, she is a mentor on Bishop
Guertin High School’s 1st Robotics team 811. She also enjoys time
with her family and plays saxophone in a band.

We hope you will join us in meeting this wonderful lady.

Hi girls…

Unfortunately, Yahoo Chat has changed their policy to only allow chat members over the age of 18. We are currently looking for a new site to host our chats, and due to this setback, we will be postponing our chat with Gwen Donahue to next week- that’s Sunday, October 23, at 8:00 pm EST.
If you know of a site to host the RCU, please contact me at [email protected].

We’re sorry for the inconvenience, but we hope to see you next week!
