EWB Members Attend Global Engineering Conference in Panama

Dr. Kershaw and four EWB students attended the ASCE-EWB Global Engineering Conference in Panama City, Panama. This conference celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Panama Canal. The conference was a great opportunity to learn more about the canal and other EWB projects around the world. The student Daniel Reyna shared his experience of their last day in Panama:

“Event: Friday Night at Cinta Costera”

“After our busy day at the conference, and visiting the Panama Canal, we all went out for dinner. We had dinner on the bay, and we had a beautiful view of the city off in the distance. After dinner, we were driving back to the hotel and we decided to stop to walk along Cinta Costera. This is a road that goes out into the water and formed a half circle with the land. The trail that was next to this road was very nice. It was a beautiful night, a slight breeze in the air, and the city was all lit up.”

“At the half way point, there are two circular platforms. We all sat there for a while and admired the city. Because this was our last night in Panama, I think we were all feeling a bit sad. We started taking pictures of each other and were playing around. We got to know each other very well throughout the week, and we were just having a good time telling each other funny stories from our past. Even Dr. Kershaw had some funny stories. This was honestly the perfect end to our trip. It was a nice yet sad walk back to the car. But it was time for us to get back to the hotel to pack, and get some rest before our flight in the morning.”
