TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – A project by Rose-Hulman students is helping keep the community safe while giving the students real-world engineering experience.
Students designed hand sanitizer stations through an internship program called Rose-Hulman Ventures.
The stations were placed on the college’s campus and also given to the Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce. The chamber then distributed them to local businesses like Baesler’s and the Terre Haute Children’s Museum.
Senior Director of the program Brian Dougherty says the students received a good experience working with companies to get the stations assembled.
“They get involved in very real projects with problems that are much bigger than themselves for the first time in their lives and they really start to understand that they can make a big difference,” says Dougherty.
The chamber says they still have several stations left. Businesses who need one can call their office.
