Becky Templet recently visited students in Shannon Hickey’s fourth-grade class at Lake Elementary School in St. Amant.
Templet is a senior electrical engineer at Shell Chemical in Geismar, specializing in high voltage. She displayed some of the tools she uses, as well as her uniform and a sample of the wiring used in the plant. She also shared some videos of the Shell Chemical plant and explained to the students how an electric arc is formed.
After the presentation, Templet gave rulers, cups, pencils and pencil sharpeners to the class.
