MHS students visit Emerson Innovation Center


Marshalltown High School students were part of a tour of the Emerson Innovation Center and took part in an engineering challenge on Feb. 23.

A group of 22 students from Marshalltown High School took a tour of the Emerson Process Management Innovation Center on Feb. 23 during the Day of Engineering.

Other area high school groups were also part of the event.

The students participated in a building challenge, and the Marshalltown teams swept the top three places in the competition.  Accompanying the students were MHS math teacher Bridget Kern and biology teacher Lynne Diggins.

“The students had a great time and many expressed an interest in the career opportunities they learned about at Emerson,” Diggins said. “We are so thankful to Emerson for supporting our students by holding events like this.”
