Fredrick Kolp, Jessieville High School, 2015 The engineering program at NPC really shined some light onto the field of engineering for me. When I began the program I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do but after being given some of the tools and shown how to think like an engineer I knew this was the field for me. These courses gave me insight into the field of engineering that I'm not sure I could have gotten anywhere else in high school. I learned so much and had lots of fun while doing so with all of the activity's and challenges that the instructors set for us.

Sarah Wilkinson, Lakeside High School, 2015 As an alum of Pathway to Engineering, I can say that the course touched on a wide range of fields, skills, and real life applications that were valuable to me even though I went a slightly different direction with my college career. We had fun working together to build all kinds of crazy things. We used the process of real engineers and faced the same challenges (on a smaller more basic scale of course). I felt confident that by the end of the course I was able to make an informed decision on if I wanted to spend the rest of my life as an engineer. The last section, Engineering Design and Development, in fact, lead me to my current major of Industrial Design.

My time at National Park gave me the knowledge and experience necessary to thrive and grow in the challenging design industry. Not only was I taught the technical skills necessary to bring my ideas to life, but my whole creative process was nurtured and expanded. The practice and training provided by my skilled instructors help me with every new challenge, and with the difficulties that come with real world client relationships. I may have left the classes, but the support and professional network that came with them are things I will have forever.
