H.B. Whitehorne Middle School is looking for engineers in our community. Julia Zambrano, the technology, engineering and design (TE&D) teacher at HBW, is hoping to find several engineers in Verona who would be interested in participating in a video conference (or two) with her students.
Students enrolled in the TE&D – Future Cities cycle course have just begun their work on developing a city on the Moon. Student teams will specialize in a particular field of engineering with a focus on one of the obstacles that would need to be addressed to make living on the Moon possible. Teams will then meet as a larger group to plan and develop their lunar city as a class.
Zambrano has currently broken her seventh grade classes into six smaller groups with specializations in agricultural engineering, water resource engineering, energy engineering, civil engineering, climate and atmospheric engineering, and city planning.
If you or someone you know would be interested in sharing any expertise on these topics please contact Zambrano via email at [email protected] Any and all professionals in STEM-related fields are encouraged to reach out, even if their field of specialization is not listed above.
