On August 12,the United Nations celebrated International Youth Day. Hastest Solutions together with Intelliscience Academy celebrated Youth Day this year by conducting their First Summer Sensor Technology Workshop entailing Automation and Sensor Technology.
Hastest Solutions invests in the youth of today for a better technology world of tomorrow. The workshop is for high school and college students to introduce sensor technology revolving around temperature, pressure sensors..., strain gauges and LVDT’s. The students conducted experiments in the test chambers located in the Relia Test Labs (Hastest Solutions Subsidiary) in the San Jose, CA lab. They also learned about data acquisition and data analysis techniques . Students who attended this workshop will be able to present their research at conferences later this year. The workshops are taught by San Jose State University Engineering Professor, Dr. Sohail Zaidi of Princeton University.
Hastest Solutions Inc feels the need to better prepare the future engineers for the fast paced technology world of today. The youth need to be prepared for the next generation of employment opportunities. Programs need to be established for skill building so we can eliminate the skills gap.
These workshops take place during the summer and winter holidays so there is no interference during regular school days. As Huff Post eloquently stated, "When given the space and opportunity to do so, young people turn their energy and creativity towards solving today’s challenges and tomorrow’s problems." We firmly believe that empowering the youth of today will lead to a better tomorrow.
