Lastoskie Lab Members Travel to Liberia


Lab Members Margaret Reuter and Sahithya Reddivari  recently traveled to Liberia with the Graduate Society of Women Engineers (SWE), along with 5 undergraduate SWE members, to host a two week engineering leadership camp with the Liberian Society of Women Engineers (L-SWE). L-SWE, founded by students in 2013, is the first international SWE chapter founded in Africa. The leadership camp, held at the Peace Corp Training Facility in Kakata, contained leadership workshops, practical engineering activities, professional development activities, and social events. In total 40 students attended from 4 different universities, and several guest speakers and visitors came throughout the week to support and encourage the participants.
