HLR PARTICIPATES IN THE 2018 EXPLORE CAREER EXPO
Hampton, Lenzini and Renwick, Inc. (HLR) was one of 90 exhibitors who took part in the 2018 Explore Career Expo at the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates. The annual event is an opportunity for 8th graders in the U-46 school district to explore career options from a several businesses and organizations, each of which had representatives available to talk about their respective careers.
HLR’s staff was on hand to talk to the students about the variety of opportunities in their fields, the earning potential, as well as the classes to focus on in high school and beyond. Students dropping by our booth were also given the Gumdrop Challenge! They each received ten gumdrops and twenty toothpicks to build a structure that would hold a textbook for 10 seconds. The activity encouraged the students to incorporate their STEM skills to design and build their structures.
HLR was honored to be a part of this event to inspire students to explore their opportunities!
