TEAZER-all about Engineering
FYI-Project is setting up it's first ever focused career inspiration event in collaboration with Junior Achievement.
With this event, we are spotlighting Engineering careers. We are seeking volunteers who enjoy talking about their jobs, can show and bring some hands-on materials for the students to experience. If desired the FYI-Project can give guidance and help with the set-up of interactive stations.
The "Teazer" will be held on September 29th, from 11 am - 1 pm at the Redwood Shores Library. Our target groups are grades 6-12 of the local middle and high schools.
This will be an awesome opportunity to connect with the community and most of all make a lasting impact on the future workforce.
About the FYI-Project
Imagine yourself back in middle school. Can you remember what you wanted to be? How did you see yourself in the future? Did you imagine yourself as a successful business owner, a doctor in a white coat or saving people as a firefighter or police officer?
We help students learn more about the many possible career paths and bring the classroom closer to where the professionals are by using modern technology.
What the students say about their FYI experience:
Sarah: "I liked it how we got a realistic perspective on someone's job."
Nathan: "The person that we talked to was really engaged with the session and answering our question honestly."
Naomi: "He was very informative about his job and his career and why he chose that career."
