South Students Visit Facebook's NY Headquarters

FB Trip
FB trip 2
On November 30th, the students in South's AP Seminar class embarked on a field trip to Facebook's New York office. Students heard from guest speakers, ate lunch in the office dining hall and toured the facility. 
 
Many of the speakers discussed their career paths and responsibilities, and connected their presentations to topics the class covered in their first unit on technology and social media. The students also learned about Facebook's company culture and core values, which deepened their knowledge about the impact of social media and connection. 
 
As one student, Mahnoor Ayaz, wrote in a post-trip reflection, "My experience gave me a new perspective on the types of positions that work behind the [Facebook] name and what the world has to offer in terms of jobs to pursue."
