Masters in engineering student Jacob Jones was one of four University of Louisville chemical engineering students who talked to area high school students during the monthlong INSPIRE program at the J.B. Speed School of Engineering. Jones explained how a cooling tower transfers heat from water to air.

INSPIRE is one of many summer learning opportunities UofL provides to elementary, middle and high school students to help them prepare for their futures. Here are others:
