Bethel Park High School students had the opportunity to participate in two career exploration events.
First, the students attended the Work Matters Summit, which was a collaborative effort between the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation and PNC.
This youth-focused, fast-paced event introduced students to STEM careers and encouraged them to follow their dreams. Helping the attendees with the Sphero Rover Engineering Challenge were members of the Carnegie Science Center’s Fab Lab.
At the Work Matters Summit, the students were able to attend a Job and Resource Fair to learn about community resources and youth-friendly employers.
Participating were Seth Mealy, Hunter Rousseau, Luke Snyder, Kevin Aoun, Melissa Szabo and Thomas Zoldos.
Second, another group of students participated in Disability Mentoring Day, which is a nationwide effort to promote career development for students with disabilities through hands-on career exploration.
Bethel Park was partnered with pharmaceutical giant Mylan and students participated in a wide range of activities to help facilitate career awareness and interest, including a global videoconference with Mylan locations in Switzerland, Dublin and England.
Additional activities included participating in an assembly line training activity, practicing communication skills with Mylan’s Human Resources Department, touring the building and participating in a STEAM activity that focused on digital innovation.
Participating in this activity were Aidan Hill, Julia Trusnovic, Lauren Wycinsky, Tyler Schultz, Katelyn Heeter, Luke Snyder, Seth Mealy, Thomas Zoldos, Melissa Szabo, Kevin Aoun, John Stofesky, Giovanni Bernardi and Colin McMurray.
