Welcome to Week 5!
This week we will be doing a deeper dive into our second engineering disciple: Environmental Engineering (to line up with next week’s Earth Day)!
Click Here for this week’s Newsletter.
In this newsletter you will be introduced to a STEM topic and find a related-activity to work on during the week (please share your results with us!). In addition, we will introduce a Northeastern faculty member working on related research and post some interesting links to related content.
