Engineering the Future
Byline: Eileen O. Daday Contributing writer
As a leading defense contractor, Northrop Grumman engineers typically work in designing top secret precision weapons and advanced solutions in global security.
But one day a month, they let down their guard and welcome a group of high school students into their highly classified Rolling Meadows workplace.
The sessions consist of more than a meet and greet. These students work with their mentors to develop a technical project, bringing it from concept to prototype, much like real engineers when presented with creating a new product.
Training and educating tomorrow's work force is the bottom line.
