The Youth Technology Academy hosted a National Science Foundation Career Night on Thursday, March 9, 2017 from 5:00-7:00PM at Tri-C’s Advanced Technology Training Center. YTA invited professionals to come speak to YTA and National Science Foundation Scholars about what steps they took to get into their current career. The presenters that made up the panel were Jim Lustig, a senior engineer from General Electric, Brad Aronson, a Quality Assurance Specialist and Design Engineer from Surgtech, Alex Natal, an Occupational Therapist with Genesis, and Drew Odum, a lawyer with Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company. Twenty-six National Science Foundation Scholars attended from various Cleveland high schools to enjoy the presentations and ask questions about the different careers and the training that goes into them. We hope that Career Night will help inspire CMSD high school students to pursue higher education with a focus on STEM studies.
