Patrick Henry High School students in Science, Engineering and Robotics toured the Coloplast US headquarters on Tuesday 5/24 to learn about the inner workings of the international medical device company.   Students were able to ask questions from key Coloplast employees in Product Design, Engineering, Marketing, Customer Service and Legal.  They toured the "LEED" (environmentally green) corporate headquarters and toured the clean room manufacturing facility. This visit is a part of an ongoing partnership between Coloplast and Henry High School.
