Riverhawk to Participate in Student Shadowing Program

Riverhawk Company is proud to announce that we will be participating in the 45th Annual MVEEC 2019 Project:SITES Shadow Day. This event is being held on March 21st at 11:30 AM at the Harts Hill Inn, Whitesboro, NY. As one of the oldest and most technologically broad STEM Shadowing Day programs within the 6-county Mohawk Valley region, the Project SITES team welcomes any school or home-schooled student willing to participate in the 2019 program. The volunteer hosts provide an opportunity for the students you nominate to gain knowledge of a wide range of applied sciences, research, applied math careers, and to gain insight into their own preferences/dislikes, strengths/weaknesses and career passions. Some of the volunteer hosts involved work in applied biology, medical research, smartphone security, hardware design and manufacturing, and cyber-warfare. It is our goal to have a diverse set of shadow day industries for the students to experience.

Riverhawk Engineer, David Albright, a past Project:SITES student and Regional Program for Excellence BOCES SABA intern will be a guest speaker at this years event. He will go over everything from how he moved from a Mohawk Valley student to a career professional in different an engineering career, the lessons learned in how to be professional technologists and the programs available to students to identify the paths that will lead them to a career. David will also discuss his work as an engineer at Riverhawk.

After the luncheon, there will be a live demo of a UAV drone flight. There will also be multiple Mohawk Valley Robotics teams demonstrating their competition robots and their space-based missions.

Riverhawk is proud to play an active part in student education in the Mohawk Valley. We participate with the Oneida County College Corp program every summer to hire engineering interns in order to give college students a great hands-on opportunity to apply the skills they learned in the classroom to real world applications.

If you know a student interested, please reach out to Project:SITES or Riverhawk for more information.
