Inside the Program

From camp to college: Freshman uses past to inspire others

When Melissa Rocha was in 4th grade, she attended a summer LEGO robotics camp at WSU. That short time learning about engineering was all she needed to know she wanted to pursue engineering as a career.

Melissa is now a biomedical engineering major at WSU and has returned to the camp she once attended to teach and inspire the next generation. Her dream job is to work in prosthetics in Wichita.
