At Eli’s. we are very proud of our
bakery tours and the opportunity to let people learn how great cheesecake is
made and all the careers that are part of our company. This year we were very
proud to have been visited by SWEPT which is a cooperative venture of the Career
Development System and South Suburban College serving the south surburban area.
The purpose is to get teachers for grades grades 7 through 12 into the workplace
to refresh, polish and, embellish their science teaching skills.

The program consists of plant tours of
regional industry and focuses on the study of concepts in science and technology
used to produce goods and services. After the plant tour, the application of
these concepts is further explored in the laboratory through guided activities.
Teachers are then charged to develop lesson plans for the classroom,
highlighting and enriching their presentation through the plant visit
experience. .

We very much enjoyed having these
teachers visit us and we look forward to them returning with their students in
the Fall.
