Story Collider presents ‘Stories from Boise State’

Story Collider presents true, personal stories from Boise State College of Engineering students Mitchell Evans, Elizabeth Gaffney, Blessing Makwera, Kay Oak and Sierra Sandison at 7 p.m. Friday, May 1.

The stories were selected from a class project in Mechanical Engineering 320: Heat Transfer taught by associate professor Krishna Pakala. The project, titled “Does personal science storytelling help students better identify as engineers?” is meant to measure whether and to what degree the addition of a storytelling assignment in a heat transfer class impacts self-identification of students as members of their future profession.

This project is in collaboration with assistant professor Eric Jankowski in the Micron School of Materials Science and Engineering, assistant professor Sara Hagenah of the College of Education, and mechanical and biomedical engineering undergraduate student Samantha Schauer.
