Learning More About Micron

Soule Road Middle sixth-graders Abigail Baroody and Timothy Everts take a virtual tour of Micron plant in Virginia

A delegation of Liverpool Central School District administrators, Board of Education members, students and parents had the opportunity to attend the recent Micron Technology branding event at Onondaga Community College.

During the event Soule Road Middle sixth-graders Abigail Baroody and Timothy Everts participated in an abbreviated Chip Camp, one of the numerous educational opportunities that Micron offers to local communities.

In addition to the event at OCC, administrators from Liverpool CSD, North Syracuse Central School District and OCM BOCES had the chance to meet with the Micron Foundation's Head of Social Impact & STEM Programs Robert Simmons III, EdD. The group discussed the ways that area school districts can partner with Mircon to provide valuable resources for students, teachers and staff in grades K-12. They even discussed programs currently operating in Virginia, Idaho and Georgia.

"Programs such as Chip Camp, Girls Going Tech and Careers in a High Tech World will enhance Liverpool’s newly-introduced career pathways that will prepare our students for their future careers," said LCSD Superintendent of Schools Daniel G. Henner. "We look forward to working with Micron for years to come."
