On June 2nd, Honeywell and Stevens Institute of Technology hosted a Student Innovation Day 2010 for Jersey City middle school students.
Stevens’ graduates, who have successfully used engineering and innovation to design relevant, high-quality products,urged students to think “outside the box” to solve problems and discover solutions to address everyday challenges. Some of the hands – on challenges included designing and building a shock-absorbing system to protect astronauts when they land on the moon.
Present for Student Innovation Day was William Hague, Director of Design and Construction, Honeywell and Greg Bartus and Henry Harms, engineering educators from the Center for Innovation in Engineering and Science Education (CIESE), Stevens Institute of Technology and John Dennan and Patrick Conrad, Stevens graduates, whose innovations in engineering spark interest and enthusiasm in young students.
