Name: James Creek
- I am a student at Humboldt State who is planning on majoring in Environmental Engineering.
Interests in Environmental Engineering
In high school I was part of the Lorax club, which was the engineering club on campus. Although it got me really excited about the environment, and I loved the chance to not be in class, in made me realize that I didn't want to be picking through the recycling to help out the earth. Instead I want to be building systems or designs that lots of people can use that help the environment, while still getting the opportunity to be outdoors.
Experience in Engineering
- For my Eagle Scout project, I got a team together to remove invasive species from a creek bank next to my church, and replanted them with native species that could better keep the bank from eroding away.
- At HSU, I've taken two Engineering classes so far: Intro to Engineering and Statics. In the Intro class we learned about water quality, how pollution spreads and how to treat it, and renewable energy. In Statics we learned how to balance systems and work out all the forces on a truss or beam to see if it will hold up under the stress.
