On April 15th, 450 elementary school students from Fairbanks, Salcha, Delta and Tok area came to UAF to experience a day in the life of a college student. For the past six weeks the students have been learning about college and careers. The goal is to have them start to prepare now by saving money, making a plan and getting good grades. Students were even able to attend mock college classes, receive a tour of campus, and have lunch with college students.
CESTiCC was happy to participate in Kids2College for the second year in a row. Dr. Sheng Zhao gave a short presentation on what transportation engineers do and undergrad student Paul Eckman gave a lab tour to all twenty three students. It was a great opportunity to share with students the many positive impacts civil engineers can have in the world.
