Tesla Foundation CEO Talks Workforce of the Future

Tesla Foundation CEO Keith Kaplan stopped by the Cypress College campus Thursday, June 22 to talk to high school students enrolled in the college’s Summer Connect Program about the workforce of the future. Technological shifts and advanced automation have created many new jobs in exciting industries like space travel and unmanned aviation (drones).

The college hosted over 200 students in classes for career exploration, educational planning, and CISCO networking during the June Summer Connect session. Students participated in field trips to area universities, including the University of California, Irvine and Cal State University, Dominguez Hills. Another couple of hundred students are expected to attend the July Summer Connect session.
