SSCI Participates in Career Fair - SSCI Environmental
SSCI participated in the Second Annual Career Night at Pearland Junior High East (PJHE) on August 4, 2018. The PJHE Roughnecks invited presenters from a variety of backgrounds to discuss careers and educational paths with the 7th and 8th grade students. The students experienced exciting, hands-on learning while gaining an understanding of the educational steps needed to achieve their goals.
SSCI presented a booth displaying sampling equipment, protective gear, and education materials. Students were able to ask questions from the SSCI staff such as, “Where can I study environmental science?” or “What kind of services do you provide?”. Demonstrations of how to use hearing protection were a big hit!
Also in attendance was SSCI’s very good friend, Tim Pylate, Executive Director of Armand Bayou Nature Center (ABNC). ABNC brought wildlife to show students the importance of these species and discuss careers in natural resources. ABNC located on Bay Area Boulevard is the largest urban wilderness preserve in the United States. Read more about ABNC at www.abnc.org.
