Kakehashi Students Visit Toray CMA Tacoma Plant
On October 24th 2019, 23 students and five chaperones from Kaiho High School in Okinawa visited Toray CMA Tacoma Plant as a part of their trip to the Greater Seattle Area touring Japanese companies with strong relationships with the USA. The students took part in a science class, conducted in Japanese and English, which included the chance to try out a water filtration experiment. The students had a great time filtering water from orange juice, and many of them had thoughtful and insightful questions. They also spoke about their career paths presentation, given by several of CMA’s Japanese employees, who spoke about their careers and how they started with Toray. At the end, a Q&A session was held, allowing students to ask employees questions about life in America and about their careers. Finally, the visit was rounded off with a group photo. The visit was a success, and we hope to facilitate similar visits in the future.
