Inspiring the next wave of engineers

Juan Santiago with students

Construction’s Juan Santiago addressing students.

We recently hosted an engineering job shadow event in the Greenpoint Brooklyn yard for Junior Achievement. We brought in seniors from the High School for Construction Trades, Engineering and Architecture, based out of Queens, and educated them about the daily life and responsibilities of an engineer and the responsibilities associated. The day consisted of a tour of our LNG plant, presentations given by our Construction / Field Operations engineers detailing projects, resume / network building, and a demonstration of pipe fusion / pipe installation. Field Operations Engineer Victor A. Vientos said, “Overall it was a great experience for both National Grid and the students. Hopefully we were able to inspire a new wave of future engineers!”
