This week was focused on soft skills, as well as a continuation of the resume building from last week. We sat down with the students and helped them realize their past work experiences as well as the skill sets they currently possess. It was a bit difficult but starting conversations with the students really got them to open up and talk more about their careers. We then discussed what jobs they were interested in applying to in the future. Our soft skills portion consisted of teamwork activities, including a water balloon relay race and building a tower made from spaghetti noodles and marshmallows. The students thoroughly enjoyed getting their hands dirty from the tower building exercise - it was a great start to the outing! Other outings this week also had an egg drop as a team-building activity. This upcoming weekend will be our annual StRIVE Field Day, which will take place at the San Diego Zoo so if you don't see us around, we'll probably be playing with the pandas.
