WESTFIELD — Westfield High School students Sydney Drugan and Rebekah Ruiz, who are taking Renee Sweeney’s Principles of Engineering class, recently participated in the 2022 STEM Week Challenge in their class and won $10,000 for their school. The money will be used to fund four internships in the community this spring and summer.
The STEM Week challenge was to interview a professional in a field that interested them, and submit the interview online. Drugan said they reached out to Tighe & Bond, and interviewed civil and environmental engineer Tiffany LaBrie, manager of the water resource line.
