EDUCATORS VISIT BROOKHAVEN LAB TO ASSESS HIGH-TECH CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

 

Seven Long Island high school teachers and guidance counselors visited the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory to learn about high-tech job opportunities and the skills required for such jobs. The Brookhaven visitors were sponsored by the Long Island Association as part of Project Long Island, an initiative to keep guidance counselors, teachers and principals up to date on Long Island's technology-based industries. Brookhaven Lab was one of 40 local institutions offering such training for educators this summer, with the goal of bringing the information they learned back to the classroom. While visiting a chemistry lab, Brookhaven Lab's seven visitors are pictured: (standing, from left) Katherine Doroski, Shelter Island High School; Cornelia Gevinski, Riverhead High School; Michelle Coburn, Smithtown High School; Carol McCavitt, Garden City High School; Karen Poidomani, William Floyd High School; Elaine Kelly, Miller Place High School; and Clive Mutschler, Longwood Junior/Senior High School. Brookhaven Lab staff include (standing, left) Clayton Hudson and (seated, from left) Grace Murphy, Renée Flack and Elaine Lowenstein.
