Inspiring Wonder for Future Engineers
Over the summer, BHC RHODES hosted a series of pop-up STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) programs for a group of Girl Scouts from the NE Kansas & NW Missouri Chapters. The series offered a hands-on learning experience about the possibilities and opportunities that STEM presents to our younger generations.
The program was led by our summer intern, Isabelle Frankel, a second year intern and Senior studying civil engineering at Kansas State University. Isabelle worked with our engineers and staff to develop opportunities and activities for the group. The group learned about all the different disciplines of engineering and how they apply to the world around us.
Katie Bushong, P.E., CFM, works in our Public Works Service Segment. Katie is our resident stormwater expert and presented to the group about soil composition and how it impacts engineers. Katie is also involved with other local STEM and STEAM initiatives around Kansas City and sits on the Introduce A Girl To Engineering Day committee.
