To All Interested High School Students,

On Friday, December 3, Northeastern University will once again sponsor Building Bridges, a day dedicated to students considering a career in engineering. This event will be in-person and at Northeastern, so all students will be required to follow all testing/COVID protocols.

Building Bridges provides an opportunity for you to learn what engineering in college is all about. Choose from a wide variety of professor and student organization-led lessons and create your own unique schedule for the day. See here for an overview of past events. Past classes have included “Virtual Reality Technologies for Rehabilitation”, “Designing Earthquake Resistant Buildings”, “Nanomaterials from Trees,” and “Detecting Disease Through Handwriting”.

Your day will begin at 9:00 a.m. with registration, followed by laboratory visits and classroom sessions, and a lunch session incorporating a Q+A panel with current Northeastern engineering undergraduates. The program will conclude by 1:30 p.m., with an optional tour of the First Year Engineering Learning Center Showcase from 1:30-2:30pm.

Registration is first come, first serve — so register now. We will follow up with more details about the schedule upon registration. As this event falls on a school day, we will provide written excuse letters as needed. Please feel free to contact us at [email protected] or 617.373.8380 with any questions. Registration for the day is $20 and will cover the cost of lunch.

Please consider sharing this invitation with your classmates and friends. We look forward to meeting y’all on December 3!
