O’Dane White addressing the 10th graders

Dorchester’s Community Academy of Science and Math reached out to NSBE to give their 9-12 graders exposure into life after high school and what it means to pursue a degree in
the STEM fields – specifically engineering. The NSBE collegiate students and professionals did not mince words with the students and shared the realities of just how hard engineering can be at times and how many of them has instances where they’d considered giving up. The overwhelming theme that the students of CASM got to walk away with, however, was that the unique place engineers have to shape lives of everyday people and shift how we interact with our world has made, and continues to make, the journey worthwhile.

Thank you Community Academy of Science and Math for inviting us to experience your youth!
