On Wednesday EWI was host to a class of 7th grade students from Upper Arlington Jones Middle School. At the beginning of their visit we asked them how many would like to be an engineer someday – about 3 hands shot up. After touring the labs, making spot welds, and laser welds we asked the kids again how many would like to be engineers someday – we had about 10 or more hands go up!
Tour guides were – Bill Mohr, Principal Engineer; Randy Dull, Engineering Manager in Arc Welding and Steve Levesque, Project manager
Lab Experiments – Jay Eastman, Applications Engineer in Lasers and Blake McAllister, Applications Engineer
The students also had an opportuity to ask questions. We had a panel of engineers which included: John Coffey, Director, Program Management; Connie Reichert, Engineering Manager in Design, Controls & Automation; Marc Purslow, Applications Engineer; Ed Herderick, Applications Engineer in Materials & Structural Integrity; Nancy Porter, St. Project Manager, Randy Dull and Larry Brown, Director, Engineering Services.
