Community Engagement - A closing ceremony on July 25th celebrated the projects completed by students in the fourth annual Brookhaven College Texas Prefreshman Engineering Program (TexPREP). A total of 62 students participated in the program, with two sections of PREP Year 1 and one section of PREP Year 2. Adriana Gomez, TexPREP director at Brookhaven College, welcomed parents and highlighted a few of the projects. Students, their parents and college administrators viewed a video presentation which featured several activities that were part of the students' work during the rigorous program, including solar ovens, bottle rocket launchers and a roller coaster project designed by students from PREP Year 2.
