Doosan Bobcat North America – through its Bobcat® compact equipment and Doosan® portable power equipment brands – partnered with middle and high schools in North Carolina, North Dakota and Minnesota as part of National Engineering Week. The week is dedicated to increasing students’ understanding of and interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers.
While National Engineering Week occurs during the last week in February, Doosan Bobcat organized events throughout the months of February and March in and around Bismarck, Gwinner, Fargo and Wahpeton, North Dakota; Statesville, North Carolina; and Litchfield, Minnesota. Each location offered students hands-on engineering activities, including understanding robotics, building a remote-control obstacle course, and learning about heat transfer and electrical circuit boards.
“Promoting interest in STEM-related programs is a mission we take very seriously at Doosan Bobcat,” said Laura Ness Owens, vice president of marketing for Doosan Bobcat North America. “We want to do everything we can to help ensure there are more young people reaching their full potential and believe STEM students are our future innovators, who can help move our communities and businesses forward.”
