Each year, our TriYoung employees participate in the Canyon Spring’s STEM Academy Career Day. STEM is an education curriculum that focuses heavily on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The students look forward to having members of our community come and share their career as it relates to working with STEM. We are asked to focus more on our passion for what we do every day, what we studied to get there, what our day is like, the "tools" we use every day, how what you do relates to STEM and how your life experiences have helped us to do what we do.
In previous years, we were able to go into the classroom and present on our STEM Careers to the students. The younger students enjoy "stories" of what we do and how we do it and they will pick up on the enjoyment we show. But due to COVID-19 restrictions last year, we were asked to provide the students with a recording to highlight our STEM career. Although we were disappointed to not be able to interact with the children in person, a recording will allow our message to be heard by future students.
It feels great to know we truly made an impact on the students, school, and community. To say 'thank you' the students sent us a Certificate of Appreciation and handmade cards. We feel honored to have an opportunity to share our passion with the students and love the thank you messages.
