News Center Maine features Dagher teaching high school students
News Center Maine reported on Habib Dagher, founding executive director of the University of Maine Advanced Structures and Composites Center, teaching a workshop in which high school students built and tested simple bridges with sticks, spaghetti, marshmallows and gumdrops. The workshop was part of the ACE (Architecture, Construction and Engineering) Mentor Program. “We are constantly being told the construction industry is looking for people. Here in Maine, we are obviously a much older state, but the industry is getting old itself. So we are trying to develop that next generation,” Dagher said.
