High School Engineering Day 

Thursday, March 5, 2020

 
“The opportunities provided to me by ELLWOOD with Engineering Day has inspired me to further my education in the engineering field. I will be attending Penn State University Park in the 2019-2020 school year to study Biomedical Engineering, but before attending this event I was unsure on the direction that my career path would go. However, it opened my eyes by seeing the possibilities with engineering and showed me the perspective of the daily job of a worker with this company. Through my project and presentation assigned to my school, I was able to learn and develop new characteristics in the engineering world such as problem solving and looking at the big picture. Being able to communicate with engineers currently in the workforce to be able to hear their experiences, daily schedules, and the opportunities they have been granted through their job expanded my understanding in engineering. As a future engineer, I will always be able to look back at my high school education and give credit to Engineering Day held at Ellwood Quality Steel for holding such a wonderful program and teaching me new concepts in engineering.”
