Young women from the Great Oaks/Wilmington High School Project Lead the Way engineering program recently visited the Miami University College of Engineering and Computing.
The students toured the university and got a chance to network with the Miami women’s engineering advisory council and took part in an engineering lab activity making speakers for phones.
“This was the best field trip I have ever been on. I want to pursue engineering in college,” said Madison Stoops, a junior.
This arrangement was made possible thanks to an outreach by Dr. Clark Kelly at Miami in an effort to promote young women in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields.
The students from WHS were accompanied by their instructor, Chris Pope, and Dessie Rogers from the Wilmington-Clinton County Chamber of Commerce.
Project Lead the Way engineering is a satellite partnership with Great Oaks Career Campuses and Wilmington High School.
