As the 2013-2014 school year comes to a close, TCA had its fourth chance to visit a local elementary school to present its Experimental Science Class. This time it was at Camas Prairie Elementary, a school in the Bethel district. The TCA associates who taught the classes, Erica Buege, Kim Arnold, and Charles Queen, visited a total of three fifth grade classrooms on May 29 and 30.

The students who participated in the class learned about Toray Industries and its business segments, the science and importance of water filtration, and about how and why the manufacturers use carbon fiber Prepreg. Students even got to do a hands-on craft activity that mocks the process of making Prepreg.

TCA values these opportunities to share real-world uses of science and technology with young students, and looks forward to future opportunities to continue doing so.
