A team of Ingersoll Rand engineers, lab technicians, human resources representatives, sales team members and procurement leaders celebrated 2015 National Engineers Week by hosting the first annual “Bring Your Future Engineer to Work Day” at the company’s campus in Davidson, North Carolina. The goals were to further STEM outreach into the community and spark children’s interest in engineering careers.
The STEM initiative aims to increase the number of minorities in the field, and the event engaged participants from multiple cultures, genders and nationalities. A 7-year-old girl led the winning team in the egg drop contest with an egg that fell 105 feet without breaking.
