Milwaukee, WI (October 26, 2015) – Around 30 students from Hamilton and Bradley Tech High Schools visited Taylor Dynamometer on Wednesday and Thursday, October 21st and 22nd. Many of the students, consisting of juniors and seniors, are studying engineering as part of the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) program. The STEM Program was designed to show students the many different careers that are offered in technical fields.
Taylor’s engineering staff provided students with a company overview presentation, answered questions and provided a tour of their facility including Taylor’s Control Room and Test Cell areas. The students gathered insightful information from Taylor employees on their educational paths from high school to college.
“This program provides the opportunity to make a significant impact on students by extending part of their classroom learning experience,” said Luther Esselstrom, Mechanical Engineer, Taylor Dynamometer. “In addition to technical skills, the importance of interpersonal skills, such as; communication, critical thinking, negotiation, and problem solving, was stressed. More importantly, this program tries to emphasize the importance of education after high school, specifically 2 and 4 year college programs and Taylor is proud to be part of the program and the overall experience.”
