On February 25th and 26th, Lisa Buellesbach, a BDS employee, participated in National Engineering And Technician (NET) month activities at the Beaverton School Districts Health and Science Option School. The purpose of the NET month activities is for engineers to share their fields and jobs with students. At each of three sessions, the students were shown a video that described how engineering is involved in almost every aspect of everyone's life. Following the video, each of the volunteer engineers described their field, the type of work he/she did, the education requirements to enter the field and what got him/her interested in the field in the first place. The students asked lots of questions of each of the engineers. At the end of each session, the students divided into groups and were given an engineering problem to solve.
The engineers all had fun working with the students and the students gained insights into a wide range of tasks that engineers perform.
