National Engineers Week Allows Students to Learn, Teach, and Have Fun

National Engineers Week at Lafayette provided students with opportunities to learn more, teach others, and have fun with the engineering field.

Members of Lafayette’s Society of Environmental Engineers and Scientists taught concepts of sustainable engineering to students from Bangor Middle School with a hands-on session building water filters from simple items. Students also traveled to Easton Area High School to talk about what studying engineering in like at college.

There were various sessions and presentations including the College’s chapter of Engineers Without Borders discussing its service work in Honduras and the Steel Bridge team presenting the design for this year’s entry in the National Student Steel Bridge Competition.

Students also had some fun with an engineering scavenger hunt, jeopardy game, and Olympics.
