JLab Observes National Engineers Week February 16-22

On Thursday, February 20, Jefferson Lab will mark National Engineers Week by hosting a small group of high school students as part of "Introduce a Girl to Engineering" Day.

The event, now in its fourth year at Jefferson Lab, is being planned by the Engineering Division and Human Resources in conjunction with Newport News Public Schools, Hampton Public Schools, and York County Public Schools.

The lab will host six young women for the day. They will spend time shadowing their mentors to see what a typical day is like for an engineer. They also will tour the lab and have lunch with their mentors in the Quark Cafe.

The young women will shadow Jefferson Lab engineers: Rebecca Yasky, Facilities associate project manager, Christine Snetter, architect; and Celia Whitlatch, Facilities Management and Logistics, as well as interact with other engineers throughout the lab.
