On Friday, March 4th, students at the St. Augustine and St. Martin LEARN program participated in a hands-on career day with visiting professionals.  Visual Artist and Post Production Film Editor Jasmine Vazquez took time off from her job at Peel&Eat to teach a rotation about careers in art. Harvard Physicist Dave Patterson lead activities about engineering and design.  Software Automation Engineer Zac Delagrange, from BitSight Technologies, taught the group about programming.  Zac is picture above answering questions and showing the children code.  It was a wonderful day of exploratory learning and we hope to do a follow-up career day later in the spring.
