This past Thursday, The Crucible hosted its first field trip since February 2020. We welcomed 48 students from McClymonds High School into the building for a tour and demonstrations in Glass Flameworking, Bike Shop, Ceramics, and Leather Working. For many, it was their first time seeing the industrial arts up close.
For years, Crucible field trip days have served as a pathway for recruiting students, Fuego Youth Leaders, even faculty and staff. Community Program Manager, Iz Plasencia explains, “A lot of the folks that have gone on to become students and faculty members or staff members, a lot of of them had their first introduction to this space through the field trip program. It shows the value of exposure to The Crucible.”
