Milford High School & Applied Technology Center Presented at New Hampshire Joint Engineering Society (NHJES) Conference.

By Frank Xydias, MHS CTE Engineering Teacher

 

Milford High School & Applied Technology Center in partnership with Manchester Community College had the opportunity to participate and present at this year’s New Hampshire Joint Engineering Society (NHJES) conference. The NHJES was held on October 19th at the SERESC Conference Center.

 

High school students Matthew Chase and Nick Liamos displayed and presented their
which was developed during the 2016/17 school year.

 

 

At the conference students also interacted with engineers throughout the state as they attended workshops and various activities together.

 

 “When would high school students ever have the opportunity in the classroom setting to interact with so many engineers…never. This conference does many things to encourage and inspire students like Matthew and Nick who want to become engineers themselves. It provides them networking with real engineers, it gives them the chance to showcase their work and ideas while at the same time challenging their designs. This is the first time that NHJES has invited high school students to participate, we feel very lucky and honored to be part of this experience. We look forward to participating in the future with new groups of students.” – Frank Xydias
 

Milford’ High’s, School to Career Coordinator Rich Paiva joined Kristine Dudley from Manchester Community College’s Workforce Development Center to meet with engineers at the conference.  Together the group discussed how businesses and community members can become involved at every level of a students career. These opportunities are geared to each stage of a learners career, from the very beginning to existing workers. Manchester Community College works with the local companies to develop programs to meet the needs of the existing workforce.
