On Feb. 21, Jefferson Lab will mark National Engineers Week for a third consecutive year. The lab will host six high school students - four from Newport News Public Schools and two from Hampton Public Schools - as part of "Introduce a Girl to Engineering" Day.
The young women will shadow Jefferson Lab engineers: Dianne Napier and Rebecca Yasky, 12 GeV Upgrade project; HyeKyoung Park and Shirley Yang, Engineering Division; and Celia Whitlatch and Christine Snetter, Facilities Management and Logistics.
Students will see what a typical day is like for a mechanical or civil engineer. They also will get to socialize with their mentors at lunch and tour the lab.
Information about Engineers Week is available online at: www.eweek.org/
