Twelve High School Students Attend BASF Manufacturing Day
Twelve Longwood High School students recently attended a Manufacturing Day career exploration event to learn about manufacturing, chemistry, and microbiology opportunities.
Hosted by leading global chemical company BASF, the event provided information about careers in STEM, the education and training required, and projects in which they would be involved.
Students participated in interactive activities, games, and experiments, including laboratory demonstrations, and met with scientists and engineers who shared experiences and provided insight into their respective careers.
"We are thrilled to have had the opportunity to attend this event with our students and learn more about the exciting career opportunities available in today's manufacturing environment," said chemistry teacher Kimberly LaRosa. "It was great to interact with professionals in the field and for our students to learn about the diverse types of projects they work on."
Additionally, BASF will provide two $1,500 scholarship opportunities to a Longwood High School graduate pursuing a two or four-year degree in STEM.
