La Crosse Tribune: Students from La Crosse’s Lincoln and Logan middle schools learned that it isn’t as easy to program a machine as they thought, Wednesday during a visit to Trane.
About thirty eighth-graders were at the Trane Engineering and Technology Building as part of National Engineers Week. During their visit, they met engineers from Trane, Dairyland Power Cooperative and other local businesses, toured Trane’s acoustics lab and tried their hands at creating a list of instruction for making a jelly sandwich.
“We want to look at how we are going to bring in the next generation of engineers,” said Kristin Sullivan, a development engineer and student activities chairwoman for professional engineering organization ASHRAE. “We want to share this profession with these students.”
