Bristol students gaining hands-on insight into potential careers

In its second year, Bristol Public Schools high school students are gaining hands-on insight into potential careers as part of the district’s cooperative work experience program. According to Bristol Public Schools STEM Supervisor Dr. Jaime Rechenberg, the program allows for students to engage in a semester of introduction to the program where they build employability and soft skills before being paired with a partnering business in the community. Daymond Austin, student intern at Bristol Central High School, said he felt one of the most important things he learned while interning at the Bristol Arts and Innovation Magnet School construction project was communication. Matthew Goral, student intern at Bristol Eastern High School, has been working with the Barnes Group and said the experience has been a positive one for him and he intends to potentially pursue a career in civil engineering.
