Bringing Science to the Community
July 8th, 2016
On Thursday, February 18th, TCA participated in the 2016 Elk Plain School of Choice Science Night in Spanaway, Washington; an annual event showcasing the science projects of about 50 students who attend Elk Plain Elementary School which also invites local companies to attend.
Representatives from TCA setup a table alongside the students’ projects to show how the company makes a difference in the local community; as well as give the students a deeper appreciation for the way science impacts the world. As the night concluded, attendees were impressed by the TCA’s table and the associates who answered questions regarding TCA, its products and local environmental projects.
In May of 2016, TCA was able to visit another local school to teach an experimental science classes to 7th grade students. Over the course of two days, May 24th and May 25th, associates presented to 132 students in four classes.
The classes began with a presentation that introduced Toray and TCA proceeded by a discussion about environmental issues and possible solutions. Associates used a Toray Hollow Fiber membrane to demonstrate different types of water filtration methods and explained which type of filters could produce clean drinkable water. Concluding the lesson, students were able to learn how TCA and its products contribute to the environment by providing sustainable solutions such as carbon fiber and prepreg.
TCA is proud to share knowledge of science and innovation with local young students, and looks forward to ongoing opportunities to do so.
