NEW ORLEANS PUBLIC SCHOOL STUDENTS TO COMPLETE "WORLD OF WORK" PROGRAM AT LOCKHEED MARTIN; GIVE PRESENTATION TO INTERIM SUPERINTENDENT
NEW ORLEANS, LA., July 30th, 2002 -- Seven New Orleans public school students will complete a three-week World of Work program at Lockheed Martin Space Systems, Michoud Operations with a luncheon at 11 a.m. Thursday, August 1 at the NASA Michoud Assembly Facility.
This is the 10th year of Lockheed Martin's participation in the "World of Work" program sponsored by the Orleans Parish Public School system. The 8th grade students are exposed to real-life business situations from employee-mentors who shared their work experiences on the Space Shuttle External Tank project. Activities ranged from computer sessions to working with composites, Michoud’s cutting edge technology.
At the luncheon Thursday, students will give presentations on what they learned during the program. Interim Orleans Parish Schools Superintendent Ollie Tyler will also attend the event.
Michoud Operations designs and assembles large aluminum and composite structures for aerospace and other applications, including the Space Shuttle External Tank.
