Pendse, Hosford speak about Maine Summer Transportation Institute on WABI

Sheila Pendse, project development associate in the Dean’s Office of the University of Maine College of Engineering, and Eliza Hosford, a chemical engineering major at UMaine, visited the studio of WABI (Channel 5) to speak about the Maine Summer Transportation Institute. For the 11th year, the UMaine summer camp will allow middle school students to learn about engineering and transportation-related careers. Participants are exposed to university life, leadership and team-building activities through a series of lectures, workshops, hand-on laboratories and field trips, WABI reported. Hosford, who attended the camp when she was in seventh grade, said that’s where she decided she wanted to become an engineer. The camp will be held July 9–20, more information is online.
