A man can
only attain knowledge
with the help of those
who possess it.
This must be understood
from the very beginning.
One must learn
from him who knows.

I am very proud of my colleagues (Dr.sc.ing. A.Sprince and M.sc.ing. R.Gailitis) who participated in the annual career education program SHADOW DAY 2020, organized by the business education organization Junior Achievement Latvia. This was an opportunity for 5 young people to “shadow” the representatives of our project and spend 6 hours to see the day-to-day work of the scientist/civil engineer profession. We are truly excited to share our knowledge not only with other scientists or students, but also with pupils who are trying to understand what they want to study in the future

P.S. It should be mentioned, that dr.sc.ing. Andina Sprince has participated not only in Shadow Day for youth but also in Profession Week with report about the researcher’s profession in kindergarten “Cirulitis” for children, representing two different age groups in Ogre, Latvia, February 11, 2019.
