schools in the Netherlands. Jet-Net companies help schools enhance the appeal of their science curriculum by
using a great variety of activities and also allow students to gain a better understanding of their future

We actively participate in the initiative by giving guest lectures and supporting a Beta Market where students
can get acquainted with technical professions.
We also allow students to work on their thesis on an energy related topic, which is part of their graduation criterion.
Junior Achievement is a nonprofit organization that brings awareness to the community about the importance of
educating our students on the concepts of financial literacy, workforce readiness, and entrepreneurship.
Junior Achievement currently reaches students by implementing fun, experiential programs taught by volunteers
from local businesses, organizations, and individuals from the surrounding community.
Core Laboratories' employees have volunteered to become role models who show students how to achieve personal
and professional success. By making a commitment to be a volunteer in elementary, middle, or high school, we
make a difference! As a Junior Achievement volunteer we have the unique opportunity to make a positive impact
on a student's life, and that difference may lead to their future success.
