Fly a plane with IIE
“We want to show what industrial engineering is by explaining simple concepts that encompass [IE],” says Maria Sofia Smith, Ambassador Director of IIE. “I think it’s truly beneficial to learn what engineering and IE is early on because it can really encourage these kids to be interested in STEM and take classes early…to have the tools to succeed.”
IIE Ambassadors Tyler Grooms, Pam Yuan, and Nik Doukas participated, among others. The tour was organized by the Engineering Honor Society, Tau Beta Pi, to introduce elementary children early to engineering. Students from other Purdue engineering disciplines also participated.
