November 10: CERM Invites Would Be Engineers To Career Discussion, Traveling While Black At Georgia Tech

CERM Workers

This week I talked with Terrell Gibbs, Chief Operating Officer of CERM, Corporate Environment Risk Management, a civil and environmental engineering firm based in Atlanta that is hosting a community conversation with civil engineers on Wednesday, November 10th at the Traveling While Black exhibition at the Georgia Tech Ferst Center for the Arts. They are reaching out to young people and students interested in a career in engineering.

Gibbs speaks about engineering and breaks down what they do. He speaks about civil engineering being part of civilization. Without roads, water, waste management, parks, sidewalks, and more civilizations can’t be healthy for their communities.

Basically, engineers take big ideas and bring them to life.

He speaks about introducing engineering to young people from the K-5 grades. Children who are creative and like math and science. They speak with them about how structures are designed using analytical thinking and numbers. At CERM they also work with high school students. Gibbs speaks about their job shadowing program that allows students to engage with local leaders from engineering consulting firms, their employees, and clients about their career opportunities.

CERM will be on hand at Georgia Tech Ferst Center for the Arts Traveling While Black exhibtion on November 10th at 6:00PM. This event is open to young people interested in learning more about an engineering career.
