So You Want to be an Engineer — Audio/visual engineering program (SYWTBAE), will be held Thursday, Jan. 17, from 5:30-7:30 p.m., in the Trumbull Library Community Room. The intended audience is for older teens, grades 8-11 and parents. This month’s speaker is Richard Gold, an audio/visual engineer with 17 years of experience. He is currently a Senior Engineer for Yale University.
The SYWTBAE program started as a proposal from Harman Ugra, a Trumbull High School student, who had an interest in developing an ongoing engineering group at the library. The idea is to get teens exposed to engineering so they have a better concept for what people in the profession do; everything from what a typical day is like, what classes to take in school, what sparked their interest in the profession, what’s the best thing about their job, etc.
