Henry L. Stimson Middle School Principal Edwin W. Smith is please to share that on Friday, February 28th, Mr. Moore’s third period Earth Science class attended a field trip to the Canon Headquarters right here in Melville.  Aligned with the theme of college and career readiness, students gained insight into the corporate world and career possibilities at Canon.  A number of presenters provided the students with a myriad of topics, ranging from environmental responsibilities to virtual mixed reality.

The theme of the day seemed to be “Canon is more than just cameras.”   Students, teachers, and administrators navigated their sophisticated and awe inspiring showroom, which catered to the “kid” in all of us.  A few highlights seemed to be the interactive touch screen timeline that displayed their technologic milestones and the “green screen” photo shoot studio. 

The smiles and an infectious enthusiasm was evidence of the trip’s success.  A special thank you from the South Huntington UFSD to community member and parent, Ms. Debra Bryggman, for helping open Canon’s doors to our students, faculty, and administration.  Finally, thank you Ms. Dawn Shields, Senior Manager of the Corporate Showroom, Canon USA., Inc., for your instrumental support to ensure all students had the opportunity to glance into their futures.
