February 9th Meeting: Civil Engineering & Bioengineering Project 2/2

Lily Garcia, a Civil Engineer for Black & Veatch, spoke about her career. She opened by discussing how she chose her major, and then spoke about what she does as a Water Engineer at Black & Veatch. Not only did she touch on what her job consists of, she also spoke about the water cycle - how we take water from a natural source, make it clean to drink and dispose of sewage.

Also, this week the girls reviewed their designs from last time and used associated ASHRAE material to determine if their incubators were well insulated.

The teams came up with really unique designs for their Incubators. One group exceeded creativity by using car tires as insulation and then covering the incubator with old jeans to make the incubator look more TSA friendly, like the project required.

This was a great hands-on experience!
