Furman Pictures created five videos for nConnect featuring students they have helped connect to internships in science, technology, engineering and math through the Opportunity Internship Program. The program is designed to build a future workforce educated in the STEM fields.
The films featured students who interned at Bad Monkey Bicycles, City of Vancouver Urban Forestry, Frito Lay, nLight and Reliance Investing. The videos showed how the students were either hired on after the internship or decided to go on to higher education in a related field.
Representatives from nConnect met with U.S. representatives in Washington D.C., DVD’s and media files in hand, to advocate continued support for the program.
