Gretchen Wainwright, senior lecturer and program chair for RIT’s civil engineering technology department, assisted Scotia Snyder, a freshman at Nichols High School in Buffalo, N.Y., with a project to build a bridge with coffee stirrers and duct tape. Students from the Seneca Nation visited RIT for Native American Outreach Day on July 14. The students toured the campus and learned about fields such as packaging science, hospitality and engineering technology through hands-on activities. The event was made possible by a collaboration between RIT’s Native American Future Stewards Program and the College of Applied Science and Technology. RIT has consistently been recognized as one of the Top 200 Colleges for Native American Students.
