A diverse group of nearly 140 juniors and seniors from Sarasota County schools and 40 engineers from 15 different local companies met last Friday for the 2019 Experience Engineering Luncheon at the Suncoast Technical College (STC) Main Campus Conference Center. Attending engineers and students toured the STC facility and engaged in roundtable discussions, allowing students to gain insight into the many engineering opportunities in the Sarasota area.

This event reflects a collaborative effort between four organizations of different areas of expertise: the Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce (GSCC), in convening employers; the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering at the University of Florida, in engineering; CareerEdge Funders Collaborative, in creating career awareness and Sarasota County Schools Career and Technical Education (CTE), in bringing together a diverse of group of students. Joining these four organizations were many employers in attendance, including powerhouses like PGT Innovations. The event has grown from last year, with more than double the number of engineers in attendance this year.
