Jessica Goldberg (MDE Theatre Engineering) Team Wins Theme Park Design Competition Summer 2020

Event Date: January 31, 2021
Without theme parks open due the Covid-19 pandemic, gaining experience through job internships was all but impossible last summer for students pursuing careers in the live entertainment industry.

Through the innovative thinking and drive from a group of alumnae from The Ohio State University, the 2020 TPEG Alumni Theme Park Design Competition was created for students to compete with their own theme park design.

Learn how Jessica Goldberg, a sophomore(!) studying theatre engineering in Multidisciplinary Engineering at Purdue prepared for her role, her virtual team environment, and details about her team's winning design. She also shares how others with similar interests at Purdue can find their fit!
