Students to Attend Utah Career Days

On April 28-29, 2014 Utah middle/junior high and high school students will have the opportunity to participate in the Utah Career Days event at the Davis Applied Technology College in Kaysville, Utah. This two day event will promote career opportunities for Utah’s youth through hands-on exposure to diverse and exciting careers in the energy, manufacturing, construction, automotive, and engineering industries. Students will discover the technical skills required to be successful in a specific occupation, learn about careers, and find out how to train for a job. Students will have the opportunity to participate in hand-on experiences such as using a backhoe, operating a cement mixer, changing a tire on a Larry Miller race car, and learn the engineering skills required to build a bridge. New this year are hands-on activities highlighting careers in health science, cosmetology/barbering, and culinary arts.

Last year approximately 3,500 middle/junior high and high school students attended the Utah Career Days event. “I thought it was well organized and the students were very engaged the whole time. They love the hands-on experience and thought it was so cool to operate the big machinery,” says Lisa Crandall, CTE Intro teacher at American Leadership Academy.

This year approximately 4,200 students are registered for Utah Career Days.
