The Macon Middle School Science and STEM-E clubs took a trip to the Raleigh area recently. They started the 3-day visit with a hands-on Engineering Presentation by Dr. Laura Bottomly of the NCSU College of Engineering, followed by a campus tour and meal with some current NCSU students. The second day took them to the NC Zoo in Asheboro followed by more looking around the NCSU campus and Q/A time about life on a big campus, in a big city. The final day focused on the annual NCSU Engineering Open House. In between making ice cream with liquid nitrogen and handling 3-D printed prosthetics, they were able to interact with students from every engineering discipline and see the career possibilities and educational paths of each.
Thank you, Ms. Annie Hornsby, for making this trip happen for these students! What a wonderful experience!
