“Occupying this space means that the science we teach here is as valid as the ones they learn there. We are preparing young people to be the engineers of the world”, said the professor.
The team was composed of 10 women and one man, a specialty in engineering that sparked the interest of participants in Utah, who were interested in learning more about the only team led by women.
Award winning students Project They were Sherlyn Monteiro, Carla Medina, Brenda Rodriguez, Melanie Dixon, Annie de la Rosa; Rafaelina Liranzo, Ana Pea, Nathalia De Leon, Scarlett Sarraf, Camila Cruz and Isaac Molloon.
