CEE grads at elementary school Career Day

September 1, 2007

CEE graduate students Amrika Deonarine and Jessica Sanders and a visiting undergraduate, Natalya Polishchuk, participated in the Career Day at Hope Valley Elementary School in Durham on June 7. They spoke to 4th and 5th grade students about what engineers do, what they look like, various engineering fields, and famous engineers and their accomplishments. They also led hands-on activities, such as building small towers with sheets of newspaper. Feedback from the children was extremely positive, and one child was quoted as saying that the Duke group “rocked.”
