Student Experiences (Hempstead)
During 2018’s Career Exploration Week, students met and spoke with successful professionals and toured exciting and cutting-edge organizations.
One of the most exciting experiences these students will never forget, is their trip to WBAB Radio. During their trip, they entered a studio to observe a live DJ, received a tour of the studio, and got a chance to speak live on the air. The students found this experience exciting because they got to hear how DJ’s voices are mixed with different filters and sound effects, as well as hear themselves live on the station!
Another exciting experience the students got to participate in, was an “Escape the Room” challenge, where they used collaborative thinking and teamwork to solve a series of challenges in under 50 minutes. Students left that event with a greater understanding of positive teamwork, and pride for solving the challenges with 4 minutes to spare!
In addition to these experiences, students got a chance to tour companies like Stop-N-Shop to learn about employment at a grocery store, including some “behind the scenes” aspects of retail, like handling shipping, stocking and bagging, as well as Panera Bread to learn about the fast food industry, the Tilles Center to learn about the Performing Arts industry, and the Marriott Hotel to learn about the Hospitality industry.
