Visit to Machu Picchu inspires Maya Goldman to walk in the footsteps of Incan engineers

"Being in Machu Picchu inspired me like no other place on Earth to continue my study of civil engineering," Goldman said, "to follow in the footsteps of those before me, and to build a future based on sharing knowledge and closely observing environmental processes, just like Incan engineers."

Senior Maya Goldman spent 10 days in Peru last summer studying water resources and sustainability through The GREEN Program. Working with Universidad San Ignacio de Loyola in Cuzco, local community organizers, and owners of power plant and water treatment facilities, Goldman learned how Peru uses ancient methods and modern technologies to ensure access to clean water for future generations.
