During the week of June 24 – 28, the West Ambassador Interns had the opportunity to mentor a group of high school seniors from the Downingtown S.T.E.M. Academy. The students were participating in a practicum at West as a requirement for graduation. During the week, each intern was assigned a S.T.E.M. student who shadowed the interns’ daily activities. We taught them about our respective departments and the responsibilities we have as part of the West team. The students also received lab tours and participated in a telepresence Lunch and Learn with the Scottsdale, Ariz., facility to learn more about West and its products.
