Future Engineers

Twenty students from Memorial and Northbrook high schools joined their instructors Sept. 29 for the Houston Community College Chancellor’s “Symposium on Engineering” held at the Johnson Space Center. During the weekend event, students were given the opportunity to listen to NASA engineers currently working on the new Orion spacecraft and new Mars rover, which is called Curiosity.

Students also got the chance to talk with representatives from local colleges and universities about engineering and engineering technology programs. Memorial High’s Shelly “Monty” Tornquist leads the Academy of Engineering program, a designated Project Lead The Way School.

At Northbrook High, John Hansen, Ed.D., directs that high school’s Academy of Engineering program. Students attending the program included the following:

Memorial High School
Zainab Ahmed, Shams Al-Bayati, Sally Al-Bayati, Sam Brittain, Alondra Garcia, Raphael Hey, Kevin Hwang, Dustin Jaoude, Michael Ju, Melissa Kowahk, Kaveet Laximidas, Tanner Lievois, Roberto Miranda, Stephen Snow, Michael Walker

Northbrook High School
