On October 19, 2019, team members of Forward Slope, Inc. (FSI) attended the 2019 Eastlake Technology & Innovation Fair and Cycle & 5K Run hosted by the Eastlake Educational Foundation (EEF). This yearly event provides an opportunity for kids in the community to meet with STEM/STEAM professionals to explore future career options. Booths are set up by professional companies from all over the county to engage with the kids and educate them on the different career paths that are available. The EEF, a nonprofit organization that supports STEM/STEAM programs in local public schools, also hosts a Cycle & 5K Run in support of the foundation’s fundraising.
In addition to a charitable donation made by FSI to the foundation, FSI engineers Mr. Donald Nguyen, Ms. Betty Lin and Mr. Clay Rivetti supported the fair by manning FSI’s technology & innovation table. They engaged with students, parents and teachers about STEM related opportunities and about their own successful engineering careers at FSI. FSI’s Human Resources Director, Mrs. Karla Corral, also supported the fair by leading her own fitness-enthused team of 10 to successfully complete the 5K Run. FSI is deeply honored to have been invited to participate in the event, and is looking forward to attending next year.
“The Forward Slope, Inc. Family is greatly honored to have a number of our outstanding employees supporting this wonderful Eastlake Educational Foundation Tech Fair. STEM Education is a cornerstone in the professional background of our talented engineers and for us to be able to “give back” to the Eastlake Students with our interactive booth is absolutely the right thing to do. And to couple our booth interaction along with the fitness offered by the day’s running event was also a great bonus. We certainly look forward to attending and supporting this event again next Fall.”, Mr. Robert Louis Clark, CAPT USN (Ret), Vice President, Corporate Communications.
