National Engineers Week at Lafayette provided students with opportunities to learn more, teach others, and have fun with the engineering field.

Members of Lafayette’s Society of Environmental Engineers and Scientists worked with elementary students from Bangor School District on projects focusing on the stability of structures. The students watched as different materials were put through stress tests and built their own bridges, which were subjected to weight tests.

Elementary Students Build Bridges

The week included various sessions and presentations such as representatives from Air Products and Chemicals giving a liquid nitrogen demo, panels on externship and grad school opportunities in engineering, and the Steel Bridge team presenting the design for this year’s entry in the National Student Steel Bridge Competition. Students also had some fun with an engineering scavenger hunt and jeopardy game.
