West, along with other Green Bay High Schools, had the opportunity to tour both NWTC and UWGB to explore opportunities in engineering. While at NWTC, students worked hands-on in classrooms with instructors putting parts together, taking items apart, creating or designing. Some students worked with fiber optic wire and learned how to cut and splice it, while others worked in agriculture with designs of equipment, learning everything that goes into the design of a piece of equipment. Students had lunch at the NWTC campus and departed for UWGB where they explored more in engineering between natural resources and the engineering that goes into water filtration, robotics and computer science. Then they took a tour of the engineering facility. Everyone was engaged and found something of interest in the day.
Part of the mission of the Do Great Things Initiative is to expose students to possible careers. Engineering is a fascinating and ever-evolving subject. There are many specialities to choose from according to one’s interests, as well as a huge range of jobs available. As an engineer, you can make your mark on the world in a positive and enduring way.
