Albany -- A new program for high school freshmen may attract more young people for careers in engineering.

Monroe High School is still in the planning stages of its very first "Introduction Engineering" class.

Teachers in charge of the class invited engineers and other educators from the community to tour the school's brand new engineering labratories.

They hope to build engineering professionals' interest in the program for classroom visits, job shadowing, and mentoring students.

"We want them to be able to start now building the foundation so they can go on and further their careers in Georgia, in Albany, come back and give to the community," engineering class teacher Selenia Barrance.

The students will have lots of hands-on experience repairing machines and other electronics.
