Companies that sponsor PlastiVan nurture the development of their future workforce by opening the minds of students to careers in science, engineering, technology, and mathematics (STEM), subjects that are utilized daily in the plastics industry.
Plastic plays a vital role in transportation, health care, agriculture, and electronics—and almost all other industries. In the United States the industry is experiencing a serious shortage of skilled workers. As the plastics industry continues to thrive, it needs creative, bright, and passionate new minds to steer its course. PlastiVan works to bring those concepts to life for students.
Program length is dependent on time available in your class, typically 45-70 minutes.
All necessary supplies are included.
“It’s a simple and powerful program; interactive with hands on experiments for students; allows the students to be curious and understand that science is fun; the program gets the message out there about how plastics enhance the quality of our lives and enhance the image and value of plastics globally.”
