Oxford, AL-- Below are pictures of Elite’s Technical Director of Research & Development, Ginger Glidewell, participating in Career Spotlight at DeArmanville Elementary School (Oxford City Schools) on March 8, 2017.  Glidewell is shown explaining the job of a Polymer Chemist.  She showcased the everyday use of polymers. Glidewell discussed edible polymers such as chewing gum and gummy bears.  These were definitely some of the favorite products that piqued the curiosity of the children. She also left 600 silicone bracelets for the students as a fun polymer take away.  Ginger hopes her time spent in the community will inspire students to pursue a career in polymers and create the next innovation.
