On March 12, 2019, female students from Franklin High School went on a field trip to Hulu!

All 18 students who visited had a fun and educational day, thanks to Wendy, Piera, Tanya, Tiffany, Christina, and Tracy!  We started the day with a tour of their office (Happy 11th Birthday Hulu, by the way!) and it seems like a great place to work.

The girls then got to a hands-on activity about product design and development, and also got a chance to practice their presentation skills in front of a group. The day also included a career Panel from professional women in STEM at Hulu. Girls heard about different experiences from women who work in STEM, and got to participate in a Q&A session with the speakers. 

 

Thank you to the wonderful team at Hulu for hosting girls from Franklin High School!
