Uponor school tourAPPLE VALLEY, Minn. — More than 60 pre-engineering students from Henry Sibley High School in Mendota Heights, Minn., visited the Uponor North American headquarters to learn about new innovations in radiant heating and cooling, plumbing, and fire sprinkler systems using crosslinked polyethylene (PEX) tubing.

The students’ visit was in conjunction with a push to encourage more science and technology education in Minnesota schools. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., who visited Uponor on Jan. 11 to promote business innovation, also spoke in an online column about the importance of technical schools and the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) network in Minnesota.

Shown here, Wes Sisco, training manager at Uponor Academy, explains the PEX tubing concept to Sibley High School students during the Feb. 14 field trip.

“We have a long, strong history in education and training at Uponor,” said Sisco. “Reaching out to students is one of our top priorities because it helps support the next generation of professionals coming into the workforce.”
