During their visit, they attended workshops in the college's plastics and polymer technology laboratories, and took part in a balloon launch. While students visited labs, teachers attended a workshop to learn more about the college's Mobile Poly Lab, which contains portable versions of industry equipment and rotates through area high schools.
