More from Scientists in the Classroom Series...

On Monday, May 22nd, Rachel Pytel, Sr. Principal Scientist/ Group Leader, CertainTeed R&D and Linda Bateman, Sr. Technical Specialist for Superabrasives R&D, once again made a great presentation to the Worcester YouthBuild students as part of the 2017 Scientists in the Classroom series. In addition to sharing their inspiring personal and professional journeys, they gave a detailed demonstration on how CertainTeed shingles are designed, made and tested.
