Students learn job-interview skills by practicing with business, industry leaders

Forest Hills — Starting in ninth grade, students at Forest Hills Northern are learning by doing, solving real-world problems through project creation. The first seniors on their way to complete Project NEXT this year have built wooden Michigan-shaped Adirondack chairs, made lavender and minty soaps and bath bombs and even a moon suit fashioned from recycled plastic bags. Each project over the past few years helped them apply what they learned in school to tangible outcomes in the real world giving them a better idea of what they like to do – and just as importantly, what they don’t. This month they took that learning to a new level when area business and industry leaders were brought into their classroom to meet tomorrow’s leaders. SNN’s videographer captured the experience.
