Below are photos from several events our students from our secondary schools were involved.
Students in 11th and 12th grade AP science and technology classes returned to GlobalFoundries after participating in National Manufacturing Day. Students who elected to participate in a mentorship program with GlobalFoundries selected a particular type of engineering they were interested then listened to a panel of engineers from GlobalFoundries share about their high school, college and professional work experiences. Students then had the opportunity to ask four different engineers questions for fifteen minutes before switching groupings. This "speed mentoring" exercise allowed students to ask questions and learn as much as possible about the engineer and their field in a short amount of time. The next step was pairing the students with a mentor. Students met their mentor and then toured the fab floor, requiring special clothing to ensure not dust particulars did not enter the work area. Students learned the process involved in making a semiconductor. Students will now connect with their mentor on a monthly basis to ask questions about their profession. We look forward to hearing from our students in June about their experience.
Students in 8th grade had the opportunity to listen to a panel of professionals from various careers and ask them questions. The professions included.
