The National Engineering League recognizes the importance of early professional development and exposure to the world of engineering. Gaining valuable research experience as a high school student allows students to take a deeper look into the engineering or STEM career of their choice before declaring their official college major. Below are some of the future technical superstars that gained their first professional engineering experiences with The National Engineering League.
Mr. Aidan C. Walker
Congratulations to Mr. Aidan Charrod Walker for being selected as a NEL High School Intern. Aidan is currently a senior at Cherokee High School in Canton, GA (Cherokee County).
