Structural Engineers Jennie Cody and Jay Saylor discuss the basics of structural engineering design and planning. High-School Students from Brockport High School, Wheatland Chili High School and Churchville-Chili High School participated in the BOCES New Visions Program at Herrick-Saylor Engineers offices.
In partnership with the BOCES New Visions Program, on February 14th, HSE hosted several high-school students who spent the day interfacing with our engineers. The ACEC Student Affairs Committee developed the program to give local high-school students the opportunity to visit engineering firms and spend time shadowing engineers. HSE hosted three students from Brockport High School, Wheatland Chili High School and Churchville-Chili High School.
The high-school students received an overview of the field of structural engineering, and how it relates to other areas of engineering and architecture. Using state-of-the-art software, our engineers spent one-on-one time demonstrating the various phases of building design and construction.
The BOCES New Visions Program provides a chance for college-bound high school seniors to explore possible careers in engineering.
In March, Jennie Cody, Structural Engineer, will participate in the Girl Scouts of America “Girls in Architecture and Engineering Program.” Fourteen Scouts from Troop 60206 will hear several presentations designed to teach them about potential careers in architecture and structural and mechanical engineering.
Recognizing the need for highly-skilled engineers in the future, HSE is committed to participating in a variety of educational programs for young people.
