Carnegie Science Center Recognizes Jessica Trybus for her Corporate Innovation
Jessica Trybus is this years' Carnegie Science Center's Corporate Innovation Award winner for her work in reinventing workforce development by making career exploration fun, informative, and most free through mobile video games.
Over the past year, Trybus and her team have worked diligently to create games for the Simcoach Skill Arcade, their workforce development platform that utilizes games to help job seekers explore careers, practice basic job readiness skills, and connect with training and employment opportunities. "The region desperately needs qualified, work-ready talent. With our games, we are able to help job seekers discover new careers and build the basic skills they need to get hired and stay hired in this evolving economic landscape," stated Trybus.
Scheduled to take place on May 12, Trybus will join innovators from throughout the region for this prestigious event at the Carnegie Music Hall. To learn more about the Carnegie Science Awards and to see the other award winners, visit carnegiesciencecenter.org/
