eWorks tour introduces students to electronics recycling jobs

The transition class and some of the high school students visited eWorks, an electronics recycling company in Elk Grove Village that employs workers with disabilities.  They saw workers taking apart cable boxes and computers and sorting the components.  They also got to watch scrap metal from electronics being smashed in a baler.  Back at school, the students were able to reflect on what they observed to decide if they would like to work in that type of setting.
