We are pleased to introduce Flat Charlie, whom we hope you’ll take along on your travels. Flat Charlie represents all U–M Chemical Engineers, and we’re excited to send Charlie off to travel with you throughout the world. We hope to get many pictures back showing Charlie in a variety of chemical engineering enterprises, working for many companies and traveling to places throughout the world. This endeavor is part of a new project to help students realize the global reach of Michigan chemical engineers.
Flat Charlie is a cousin of Flat Stanley, with whom some of you might have become acquainted as the main character in a children’s book and a geography and world studies teaching tool. Those of you who had Professor Fogler as a teacher will also recognize the germ of this project in the many pictures he has taken of people reading his text book around the globe.
Only non-doctored pictures, please. (Please treat Flat Charlie with respect, we wouldn’t want any harm or embarrassment to result from this project…)
