Keystone Engineering continues its strong commitment to support Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) programs. Keystone provided support for students enrolled in Beau Chene High School's Drafting and Design Technology curriculum to participate in a NASA initiative promoting STEM interest in high school.
Beau Chene High School is located in Arnaudville, LA, near Keystone's Lafayette office. The school has participated in NASA's High School Students United with NASA to Create Hardware (HUNCH) Initiative for five (5) years. Throughout the program, students collaborate with NASA engineers via Skype to design 3D models of hardware astronauts use to train for space travel. At the conclusion of the program each year, students travel to John C. Stennis Space Center to present their work.
During this year's trip, Keystone extended an invitation to students to visit the Metairie office. Students met Keystone's CEO, Barry Reed, P.E., along with other engineers and key personnel involved in the design of our most innovative projects.
Keystone's employees prepared a presentation for the students and answered questions about working in engineering and design. At the end of the visit, students were treated to a tour of the office by Darrell Chiasson, Keystone's Drafting Manager.
