Students at Jerry Zucker Middle School learned about the field of engineering from some local people who know it best.
Boeing engineers shared their experiences with 8th grade students on Wednesday.
Engineers Richard Prause, Francis McCarthy and Kevin Swift showed students a brief video about the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner and then a powerpoint slideshow about the engineering.
Students learned what an engineer does, examples of engineering and the rewards a career in the field can bring.
The visit was part of Boeing community outreach during National Engineering Week.
