Nassau High School Students Tour Engineering Program


About 30 high school juniors and seniors from Malverne and Port Washington spent a day on campus this week, touring Hofstra University’s School of Engineering and Applied Science, participating in a series of interactive projects and meeting Hofstra engineering students and alumni.

The program, moderated by Engineering Professor Mauro Caputi, included an exercise in which teams of students were given four minutes to solve a problem: how to remove a golf ball from a mailing tube without touching the tube, using only scissors, tape and string.
