At Wa-Hi this week, 36 women students attended the Women in Engineering career exploration event. Guest speakers from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Key Technology and WWCC shared why engineering studies and careers are good choices for women. Students were encouraged to take courses in science and math in high school and when the going gets tough in college classes, stay the course - the rewards are worth it!  Women are in high demand in the engineering workforce and currently only make up 20% of all engineers nationally. Engineering careers provide flexibility, high income earning potential, work that helps people and job opportunities around the globe.

The winning team of Digital Media Technology students Ruben Balderas and Aaron Page interviewed Instructor James Polson, among others, as part of their assignment in the regional competition for SkillsUSA on February 3rd. Contestants were challenged to plan, shoot and edit a short video as if it were an assignment from the SyFy channel on behalf of their 'Ghosthunters' series.

Elsewhere in the SEATech facility, Electrical Systems Technology students raced against the clock to complete a residential wiring assignment under the supervision of Instructor Eric Matson.  At the end of the day, Matson and Digital Media Instructor Jeffrey Townsend made plans to take their winning students to the SkillsUSA state competition in Yakima at the end of April.

Even after the fast-paced and jam-packed day, they both said that they look forward to hosting an even bigger regional competition next year.
