Big thanks to HARTING-North America in Elgin for sharing your day with more than 90 freshmen from the Bartlett High School STEM Academy. Students worked in teams on production questions and building a connector kit, listened to engineers talk about their work and took a tour of the facility where the company manufactures products for the connector industry. These connectors are used in mechanical and plant engineering, broadcast and entertainment, factory automation, power generation and distribution.
Student Ronit Nagarapu said he learned a lot about the different types of engineering jobs and the visit “solidified my decision to become an engineer.” Freshman Jessica Pearce said she’s not yet sure about her career path but valued the visit saying “I do think experiences like this will help me make up my mind.”
Kudos to the team at HARTING for helping arrange the visit.
