On November 14, 2018,  participants in our Tour Your Future program visited Michael Baker International. During the tour, participants had the opportunity to meet female professionals that work in engineering. Students met with an aviation engineer, a civil engineer, and an ecologist! We learned how GIS mapping is useful for various careers and how it’s used to collect data. We constructed hoop gliders, “flew” them to various cities, and tracked data to show in real-time how an interactive GIS map works. We also learned about the different types of pollution in groundwater, and how ecologists are working to create sustainable green spaces, and before we left, we learned how civil engineers take care of our roadways and bridges. We even had the opportunity to create our own bridges using K’nex pieces!
