In this episode, you'll listen to my conversation with Paula Rodriguez who recently graduated from the FAME (Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education) program and currently employed as an Advanced Manufacturing Technician at Toyota. Paula talks about how she became associated with the FAME program and how her high school coursework in PLTW (Project Lead the Way) classes, helped her in being selected. Paula then goes on to describe the comprehensive education, training, and mentorship she and her fellow FAME students gained during the program.

To hear more to a bit more background on Paula's story coming to the US as well as PLTW's great learning programs, listen to Paula's episode on PLTW's InspirED podcast series. Please click here and check out episode #7
