Bosco Tech Alumni Spotlighted During National Engineers Week
Representing organizations like Edison International and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the speakers made presentations on topics as diverse as space flight mechanisms, effective city planning, and digital cloud storage. This year, the day's special guests included students from neighboring all-girls schools Alverno Heights Academy, Ramona Convent Secondary School, and San Gabriel Mission High School. The students, who selected two presentations of their choice, had the opportunity to ask questions about the speakers' companies, career pathways, and university course work.
"Engineers Week is a natural fit for a STEM-based school like Bosco Tech," said Principal Xavier Jimenez. "Hearing from our own alumni who are engineering professionals is an invaluable opportunity for current students, and we are happy to have been able to share that with students from our sister schools. Bosco Tech regularly engages industry scientists and engineers to visit the campus and speak about the path to university and their careers beyond. That connection to the 'real world' helps to better prepare Bosco Tech graduates for the many opportunities they will have after high school."
Bosco Tech is an all-male Catholic high school that combines a rigorous college-preparatory program with a technology-focused education. The innovative curriculum allows students to exceed university admissions requirements while completing extensive integrated coursework in one of several applied science and engineering fields.
