Civil engineering major Brooke Clare is no stranger to the lab.

Brooke has spent the past two summers doing faculty guided research at Clarkson with the McNair Scholars program in the civil engineering department. Her research involves developing an alternative binding material used to supplement cement.

Through her research and academic achievements, Brooke has received several awards including third place in the Technical Research Experience competition at the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) fall regional conference (a club that she is involved in on campus) and first place in Engineers of Tomorrow Technical Bowl. She presented her research at the University of Buffalo’s annual McNair conference and Clarkson’s SURE symposium.  

Brooke is also an active member of Women in Science and Engineering (WISE), a living-learning community where she helps plan and organize events to enhance women’s skills in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) fields. She is Clarkson’s Academic excellence intern for the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) and member of Clarkson’s emerging Leaders program.

In addition to her many accomplishments, Brooke expanded her academics internationally as she took the spring 2011 semester to study abroad in Hong Kong.
