Northport High School alumnus Tommy Thall was recently featured on a new series of career videos by the Long Island STEM Hub, titled, "Full STEM Ahead Long Island."

The STEM Hub is an organization consisting of industry, academic and not-for-profit volunteers working to advance STEM education on Long Island.

This video series will serve as inspiration for other local students, parents and educators to pursue rewarding careers in STEM-related industries here on Long Island.

In this video, at approximately 6:15, Tommy talks about his time working with composites to shape surf boards as an employee at Nature Shapes in Sayville. He credited his interest in the field to courses he took during his time at Northport High School, including Project Lead the Way.

A new video will be released each month highlighting varying STEM industries. This first episode, “Crushin’ it with Composites,” was already nominated for a New York Emmy Award.
