“I think that career day was fun because we got to eat outside and learn all about different types of jobs. I liked all the stations but really liked the electric. It was my favorite because we got to put parts and wires together to make something that works in the end.”​

“I really had a blast at career day. The presenters were all super helpful, nice, and spoke clearly. My favorite thing was learning about the water circle and how clean water not only helps us stay healthy but how water is also important to our manufacturing companies. Thank you so much!”
