Akira Romero-Berube attended NC State University for her Bachelor's degree in Biological Engineering. She has held a position for five years working as a student with The Engineering Place, a preK-College Engineering education outreach program. Her experience at NC State has left her with a love for the theoretical, technical, and educational facets of engineering and she hopes to pursue a master's or PhD in engineering education so she can pass on that enthusiasm to others.
Rachel will be receiving my B.S. in Chemical Engineering from NC State come May 2019. She is heavily involved with the Goodnight Scholars program as well as the engineering education outreach efforts by the Engineering Place and its partners. She believes it is important to get future generations excited about STEM in any way, shape or form. Developing a passion for something at a young age can be a powerful tool for success in the future. Teaching kids helps remind Rachel why she fell in love with engineering in the first place.
Dr. Laura Bottomley, Teaching Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Elementary Education, is also the Director of Women in Engineering and The Engineering Place at NC State University. She has been working in the field of engineering education for over 20 years. She is dedicated to conveying the joint messages that engineering is a set of fields that can use all types of minds and every person needs to be literate in engineering and technology. She is an ASEE and IEEE Fellow and PAESMEM awardee.
I am currently a student at North Carolina State University, as well as a Goodnight Scholar Class of 2020. I am majoring in chemical engineering and would like to work with renewable energy, focusing on alternate resources or more efficient forms of oil.
