Middle School Girls Learn About Engineering at UMaine, WABI Reports

WABI (Channel 5) reported on a recent visit to the University of Maine by a group of middle school girls from Bucksport. The students participated in Sustainable Energy Leaders of the Future (SELF), a program led by UMaine’s Forest Bioproducts Research Institute and the College of Engineering that aims to interest females in science and technology at a young age. “The idea is to get them aware of what their opportunities are and what exciting things are being done in science-related fields today,” said Amy Luce, manager of UMaine’s Technology Research Center. Sheila Pendse, project development associate with the College of Engineering, told WABI the college wants the next generation of engineers to know there is also more related to working with forests than just paper mills and logging.
