Engineering & Science Theme Crossword Puzzle
February 11, 2024

This custom RF Cafe engineering & science themed crossword puzzle for February 11th contains only clues and terms associated with engineering, science, physical, astronomy, mathematics, chemistry, etc., which I have built up over more than two decades. Being the 11th day, words containing the letter "K" are marked with an asterisk (*). Many new words and company names have been added that had not even been added to the world's technical lexicon when I started in the year 2002. As always, this crossword contains no names of politicians, mountain ranges, exotic foods or plants, movie stars, or anything of the sort unless it/he/she is related to this puzzle's technology theme. You might, however, encounter the name of a movie star like Hedy Lamarr or a geographical location like Tunguska, Russia, for reasons which, if you don't already know, might surprise you.  The technically inclined cruciverbalists amongst us will appreciate the effort. A full list of all RF Cafe crosswords is at the page bottom. Enjoy!

acr. = acronym, abbr. = abbreviation, pl. = plural, wds. = words
