This one-week day camp is designed for developing student creativity and to provide budding engineers the opportunity to meet and speak with working engineers. During part of the camp, Ms. Barry will work on campus with different engineering departments, learning and completing hands-on projects to better understand the breadth and variety of engineering fields. For the remainder of camp, Ms. Barry will visit corporate engineering plants, including General Electric, Procter & Gamble, and Northrop Grumman Xetron and meet professional engineers to see their work in action.
Ms. Barry will also take part in teamwork activities, group projects and sessions to learn about college preparation, approaches to teamwork, professional development, and will meet current University of Cincinnati Engineering and Applied Science students.
The camp runs Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.- 4 p.m., ending Friday with a goodbye banquet to which parents are invited.
Ms. Barry is the first North Adams High School student to be chosen for the University of Cincinnati “Women in Engineering and Applied Science Summer Camp.” The school congratulates Ms. Barry for her work in obtaining this recognition, and wish her great future success in her chosen career as an engineer.
Sophia is the daughter of Kendra West and Ed Barry, and the granddaughter of Sharon and Kenneth West of Winchester and Jackie Barry of Hillsboro.

  1. Congratulations on being selected to the University of Cincinnati’s “Women in Engineering and Applied Science Summer Camp”. I had no doubts when I nominated you for this honor that you would be one of the chosen, because of your exemplary talent, unflagging commitment to academic excellence and your high set of personal standards. Being selected is an achievement in itself, but it is only one rung on the ladder you are climbing toward a highly successful and fulfilling life. There are even larger victories looming for you in the not-too-distant future. Thank you for serving as an example to students everywhere that, “If you can dream it, you can do it!” Thanks also for representing North Adams High School in the highest possible manner.
