Fontbonne students participating in the Brown Pre-College Scholars Program in Engineering had the ultimate Brown University experience! Upon arrival, students were greeted by Brown professors Dr. Karen Haberstroh and Dr. Indrek Kulots. During the welcome luncheon, students were given an opportunity to socialize with current Brown engineering students and inquire about their courses, projects and career goals. Students also sat in on an Introduction to Engineering lecture with Dr. Clyde Briant, Dr. Chris Bull, and Dr. Haberstroh where they learned about a cross product. After a short break they were given the opportunity to explore the campus and athletic facilities. During the tour of the Engineering labs, students participated in an activity led by Dr. Kulots where they investigated electrical energy and its sources.

The Brown Pre-College Scholars Program in Engineering is a year long online course of study taught by faculty from Brown University's School of Engineering and overseen by Brown's School of Professional Studies and Pre-College Programs.
