“The students put a great deal of time and effort into these projects. I was surprised by the detail of knowledge they had achieved by studying the project as a group and solving the problems as they arose. Some of these ideas could be beneficial to our company.


Also, Heather Houston’s science class students were surprised the terminology they were taught in class was actually used in real life work situations at CommScope.


As far participating in other STEM related projects we would be happy to. I think it is beneficial for students to get a better understanding of what/how companies work and shows them what they learn in school is important and is related directly to the outside work environment.”
