” Experience gives us the test first and the lessons later.” With this activity we joined for the first time, I fully understand why it was called “immersion”. It was to absorb ourselves into the situations of others. At first we are really nervous and excited at the same time
During our work experience and also our data gathering at Provincial Motor Pool, I was fortunate enough to have experienced working with some professionals and learned many different sides of what goes into a project, the general process of how a project is initially planned, developed and completed, as well as how much work and detail goes into every stage. Another valuable lesson I have learned during these 2 weeks, were the many different types of work an Engineer has to perform, which in turn, have provided me with more insight into the different types of roles and responsibilities that I could perform, as a STEM student.
Reflecting back to our first day at Provincial Motor Pool, it was one of the most memorable days of our time at work. After being introduced to the employees, we were given an orientation about the things that we will be doing. They were very open and happy for us to contribute as much as we wanted to, and were open to any suggestions and ideas. This instantly made us feel comfortable and definitely made us feel as part of the team.
