Exposure to Engineering

The Akron Student Engineering Program proved to be an effective way to expose high school students to field of engineering prior to college. PRIME AE worked with the student John Vang. John was exposed to various tasks and experiences in water/wastewater branch of civil engineering. John learned about how sewer collection systems are assessed for rehabilitation by reviewing pipeline interior inspection videos and conducting field observations of sewer manholes. I believe John was given a glimpse into the world of civil engineering where he can further his interest in the field. Unfortunately, we do not have good pictures.
