Hands-on engineering at Texas Instruments

A group of Upper Schoolers recently attended an afternoon workshop at Texas Instruments’s South Portland facility along with teachers Stephanie Dolan and Sue Stein. Students toured “the Fab” and had a Q&A session with both veteran engineers and recent graduates.

Texas Instruments designs, manufactures, tests, and sells semiconductors—key components of items we experience every day, from robots and refrigerators to drones and door locks.

It was a great opportunity for students to put their Chemistry knowledge to use. Thanks to TI employee Heather Maines for facilitating the visit.
