Appleton's Learning for Life Program: High School Students Learn About Engineering Careers

Thursday night, Jan. 12, I'm giving a presentation to a group of local high school students participating in a local program called Learning for Life sponsored by Boy Scouts of America. Once a month students hear different presentations on engineering careers. I've been to a couple and have really enjoyed it.

My presentation on Thursday will be from 6:00 to 7:30 PM at the Miller Electric Training Center, 1515 W. Melvin Street in Appleton. I'll be talking about careers in process and chemical engineering, plus a little about the importance of patents and the career opportunities for engineers and scientists who pursue patent law as patent agents or attorneys. And I'll have a few nice things to say about my employer, Kimberly-Clark Corporation, a great place for technical folks.

Many thanks to the fine folks at Miller Electric (a really amazing business) for supporting the Learning for Life program and for making their facility available.
