2018_Connectivity_KidsI love watching my kids grow up. I also love watching them learn about anything and everything. They are truly sponges, absorbing all the knowledge they come across. That’s why I always look forward to taking them to my office to learn about CommScope and the industries we serve.

Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day was observed again this year at CommScope’s headquarters. It’s a great program run by our company’s Human Resources team. My daughters joined more than 80 other employees’ children to learn about various professions, including: 

  • Engineering
  • Human resources
  • IT
  • Finance
  • Legal

CLICK TO TWEET:  What do kids think about connectivity and the future? CommScope's Joseph Depa asks a few of them.

Not only did they learn about some of the solutions we manufacture, but they also learned what it is like to work for a big company. I was glad to lead a session explaining Corporate Communications and Marketing. During my session, I asked the kids two questions: 

  • What does being connected mean to you?
  • In 20 years, how will technology change the world?

I was interested to learn what some of the kids think about the industries we serve plus what they expect from CommScope and other technology companies, because this generation is “always on.”

I’m proud to present a little insight into the minds of our children and what they think. I believe you will find it both interesting and entertaining.

I really enjoyed Mr. Depa's post on "What do kids think about Connectivity?" Since the question was raised at the Commscope Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day it made me think about the growing STEM learning partnerships ecosystem in our local NC Foothills region. This includes such partners as our Granite Falls based Foothills Community Workshop Makerspace, Carol Moore's STEM West Project, Gina Barrier's Northwest NC office of the NC State University Science House, and Jamie Warren's HobbyTown store in Hickory, among others. One of Carol Moore's recent STEM initiatives is a Problem Based Learning (PBL) partnership with several local corporations. It would be great to learn from Mr. Depa who would be the best STEM Education contact(s) at Commscope Headquarters. Commscope contains many candidates for STEM Education "Bodies of Knowledge" in the sense of Subject Matter Experts that could help us develop "Next Generation Connectivity" PBL learning modules along with "Learning by Making" activities targeting STEM hands on learning focused on such new Commscope product areas as 5G communications, IIoT networks, Cable Engineering and Manufacturing, and Broadband Connectivity, among others. Please get back in touch with us about who at Commscope can talk to us about Commscope"Connectivity" focused STEM education. Thanks for your consideration of our comments.
