On November 7th, 2016, the seventh annual Engineering Conference for High School Students was held at the Nanuet Library.
As usual, it was hosted by AAUW and the New York Society of Professional Engineers, Rockland Chapter. The conference was organized and run by the STEM Program Subcommittee for Engineering, AAUW Rockland Chapter. This conference was dedicated to the memory of our subcommittee’s former Chair, Dr. Renee Brilliant Donn, who passed away earlier this year. She was the driving force that guided our committee through the first six years of planning and decisions, resulting in the evolution of the Engineering Conference for Rockland’s high school students into what it is today.
