Knoxville Office Builds Community with Legos

Once a week Seth Frank, a senior engineer in our Knoxville office, helps with homework and tutoring at Emerald Youth Foundation’s after school care.  On December 12, 2017, he presented “Who Are Engineers?” to a group of urban middle-schoolers there.  To augment Seth’s efforts, the office also raised money for 22 LEGO sets as parting gifts for the students after they learned how engineers touch their lives every day and that they too have the potential to become engineers.  The students told Seth how to make a peanut butter sandwich in an amusing exercise on how to provide clear instructions, and they honed their engineering skills by building marshmallow and toothpick towers.
