Students at Advantage Truck Group (ATG) through Westfield Technical Academy’s (WTA) co-op program have the opportunity to work on trucks up close and gain the experience of working in a real garage. Riley Sullivan, a senior in WTA’s Automotive Technology shop and lone member of the co-op with ATG, said his job involves working on the various parts of each truck. “I do everything from oil changes to engine work, sometimes some transmission work, I do brakes, basically whatever they tell me to do I do it,” he said. Once he graduates in the spring, Sullivan said he wants to stay with ATG for as long as possible. Click here for the article in The Reminder: https://bit.ly/3cS7PVo.
Adopt a Classroom, an initiative of Westfield Education to Business Alliance has gone virtual again!! Bridget Leahy, Education Manager at Amelia Park Children's Museum, took students from Megan Hysler's 1st Grade Class on a virtual tour of Amelia Park Children's Museum! During the student's science block the last two days, students were not only able to tour the Museum but launch into the field of Space Exploration. The culminating activity was a STEAM project where students got to create and launch their own straw rockets. Megan Hysler- 1st-grade Teacher Abner Gibbs and Highland Avenue- "This virtual field trip program was a unique, hands-on experience my students will never forget. During this time of distance learning, I have found so much value in the ability to connect students with their community even while they are stuck at home. Thank you, Bridget, from Amelia Park, for giving my students this opportunity and engaging them in the world of space exploration!" Bridget Leahy- Education Manager of Amelia Park Children's Museum- "It was an amazing experience working with very bright children and educators from Westfield Public Schools. Their willingness to learn and adapt to virtual learning continues to amaze me!"
