1. Getting to spend part of my work day helping math and science teachers understand the world of business, so that they can (hopefully) better prepare their students for life beyond school. I feel fortunate to work for an employer who provides opportunities for (indeed, encourages) these types of interactions.
2. Learning what various types of engineers actually do. I had heard the terms “mechanical engineer”, “chemical engineer”, “civil engineer” before, but didn’t fully understand what these words translated to regarding tangible/observable products. Now I know! (At least a little bit, anyway.) 🙂
3. Seeing a small scale and a large scale 3-D printing machine in action. So, so, SO cool!
