Bobby Wright

Pacific Ridge School students Paige Miller and Bobby Wright of Carmel Valley were part of prestigious programs and internships in the field of engineering this summer.

Paige participated in the Smith College Summer Science and Engineering Program, a four-week residential program for exceptional young women with strong interests in science, engineering and medicine.

Each July, select high school students from across the country and abroad come to Smith College to do hands-on research with Smith faculty in the life and physical sciences, and in engineering. Some of the finest researchers and teachers in the world, the Smith educators provide an environment that is challenging, cooperative and rich in role models for young women interested in pursuing scientific fields.

Bobby began his summer by attending EPIC (Engineering Possibilities in College) Camp at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and followed up with an internship with Metavana.

EPIC teaches students about engineering and allows them to experience hands-on lab work in a university atmosphere. Upon returning from the one-week summer program, Bobby began work as an intern at Metavana, a San Francisco-based services company that provides intelligence to corporate clients to better manage their social reputation and make product and service improvements.
