TEAM FOR TOMORROW BUILDS CHOCOLATE FACTORIES

share share share share share share

Last Friday, Truebeck’s Team for Tomorrow volunteers partnered with the ISPE San Francisco Chapter for their annual Chocolate Factory program. Our team visited Ponderosa Elementary School in South San Francisco to help the fifth-graders learn about construction and the pharmaceutical industry by building chocolate factories with craft supplies. Started by Genentech in 2006, the Chocolate Factory project teaches students about science and engineering concepts, with the hope of interesting them in science and engineering careers.

The teachers had this to say:

“This was great—we’ve never seen such good projects from the kids.  The volunteers really helped them stay on task and we’ve never seen such a great clean up afterwards.  Thank you Truebeck!”

We certainly left a positive impression on the kids and faculty, who have already asked us back next year!
