President of Wentworth Institute of Technology Visits Scituate HS!
The president of Wentworth Institute of Technology - one of the top rated schools in the country according to The Wall Street Journal and Times Higher Education - said she was so impressed with Scituate High School’s engineering students that she visited the campus to recruit the young engineers and hear about their work creating a prosthetic arm for a local 9-year-old.
On Wednesday, Feb. 14, Zorica Pantić, president of Boston’s WIT, was welcomed by students of the SHS Career and Technology Education engineering program and faculty members. Students gave a presentation breaking down the development process of the prosthetic materials, and Pantić told them about top-rated WIT programs and possible careers post-college for Wentworth alumni.
Pantić said once she saw the project SHS students created for Olly Mancini, 9, meeting the Scituate teens in person was a must.
“I was very impressed by the work that the students have done - they really changed the life of Olly, and that’s what Wentworth is all about,” she said.
Pantić, who called the students innovatively spirited and critical thinkers, said, “For the future of our country, it’s very important to have the high-tech workforce.”
“We want them all to come to Wentworth … We’re here to recruit,” she said with a smile, speaking of the SHS teens.
Principal Mike Hassell said, “We’re very honored to have Wentworth Institute of Technology reach out to us,” adding that Scituate students and the school’s CTE program are being recognized for their hard work on an international scale since news first broke about the prosthetic arm project.
He said there is instrumental value in partnering with other institutions like Wentworth, as the collaboration helps SHS further prepare students for the future and train them for necessary skills in college, and encouraged students to apply to the SHS CTE program.
