The question as to whether Facebook, Twitter, texting, video games and other new technologies are causing social isolation in today’s society will continue to be a hot debate among sociologists, psychologists and other academics; now, the issue is seeping into the world of art.


Lamar University and the Society of Women Engineers will host a fair Saturday, April 13, to promote and inform people about the benefits of an education in engineering. The Discover Engineering fair will be held at the Spindletop Gladys City Boomtown Museum, located at 5550 Jimmy Simmons Blvd., from 1 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. It is designed for seventh- and eighth-grade students, but is fun for everyone including parents. The fair is free and open to the community.
