Engineers are in high demand and businesses are looking to fill jobs.
The workshops provides students, parents, and teachers the opportunity to explore high demand careers in the business world of today.  Students will experience what being an engineer means, along with the skills and education necessary to work in the field. Students also get the chance to connect with businesses and build relationships for potential future employment. Engineers are in high demand and businesses are looking to fill jobs. All students, parents, and educators alike are invited to attend, participate and learn.

Why participate as a business?
We have been very fortunate to have many businesses throughout our community support the Business AfterSchool program. Host businesses get the chance to share their business, connect with their future workforce and help educate students about their field of work. This year’s line-up of events have included Manufacturing Week and Computer Science Week. Health Care Week will take place in March.
