Chamber Hosts Tech Tour for Carpinteria High School Faculty
On October 9, the Chamber organized a tour of local tech companies for the Carpinteria High School faculty’s professional development day. The tour included visits to Agilent Technologies, Curvature, and the UCSB Nanofab. The tour gave teachers insight into technology-related careers, with the purpose of bringing back valuable knowledge to inspire their students in their future career paths.
In today’s dynamic job market, it’s crucial to recognize that not all career opportunities require a background in computer science, mathematics, or engineering. Numerous career possibilities can be explored from entry-level positions within a company.
Kristen Miller, President & CEO of the South Coast Chamber of Commerce, highlighted the presence of numerous burgeoning tech companies in the South Coast region. She emphasized, “There are excellent career prospects right here in our local community. The primary objective is for teachers to inspire local students to unlock their full potential in the coming years. If we can expose them to a diverse array of opportunities, including high-tech positions, it’s an exceptional way to bolster our local economy while nurturing the growth of our youth.”
