HERA again participated this summer in the Rockwood School District’s Partners in Education Project Interface program, which partners students with business professionals in the students area of interest to shadow the summer before their senior year. Haley Meyer, a rising senior at Marquette High School, partnered with HERA to learn about lab design and architecture.
HERA designer Jinhee Lee mentored Haley during her time with the firm, leading her through exercises to research and design a site into two possible uses: a sustainable laboratory or a robotics laboratory. Haley created two layouts from the existing 742-sf lab. On her final day, she presented her design solutions to the office and shared her experiences in the program.
Haley will be applying to Benedictine College and Missouri University of Science and Technology. She may apply to University of Kansas, but understands that will cause family strife with her University of Missouri-educated parents. Her time with HERA helped solidify her career interest in the built environment, in either architecture or engineering.
