Coverage of Engineering Expo

Several local media outlets covered Saturday’s Engineering Expo hosted at UMaine. Bangor TV station WABI interviewed College of Engineering Dean Dana Humphrey, who said the goal of the event, which featured hands-on activities for more than 1,500 school children, is to encourage the next generation of engineers. Victoria Blanchette of the College of Engineering told WLBZ engineering schools cannot graduate enough students to replace the current baby-boomer generation of retiring engineers. The Bangor Daily News spoke to Philip Dunn, UMaine construction management technology faculty member, who said his and other engineering departments are looking for more woman to learn the trade. The BDN story was accompanied video that included an interview with UMaine bioengineering major Jeffrey King.
