IPC APEX EXPO 2020 Attendees Speak: Katie Carl


Reading time ( words)

Katie Carl, Mission Hills High School teacher 

Kelly Dack: You’re the teacher of about 30 students who are here for the IPC STEM Student Outreach Program, touring the show floor. We’re doing a walking interview because we have to keep an eye on the students (laughs). What have the reactions of your students been?

Katie Carl: They’re all really interested. We have a wide range of students, so some have heard about and seen these types of technologies, but others have not. It’s really neat to see their responses.

Dack: What are their ages and grades?

Carl: Most of them are grades 10 through 12, so they’re about 15–18 years old.

Dack: Do you think you’re planting any seeds of technology? Are we looking at future Elon Musks?

Carl: Definitely. Again, we have a wide range of kids. All of them have some sort of interest in technology, which is why they wanted to come in general. It’s neat when they start seeing how these technologies are created because a lot of them have seen robotics or have done a tiny bit of soldering with little circuits, but when they can see how those things are built and created in the industry, it makes it more applicable for them.

Dack: Thanks for all you do as a teacher.

Carl: Thank you.

This brief interview appears in the 2020 edition of Real Time with... IPC APEX EXPO Show & Tell Magazine.
