    Career Tech Saturday Offers Free Hands-On Workshops for Elementary Students

    Lorain County JVS is offering the opportunity for 5th and 6th grade students of our thirteen associate school districts to attend a Career Tech Saturday from 10:00 am to 12:30 pm on Saturday, February 24th.

    Career Tech Saturday is a career exploration program designed to give elementary students hands-on experience in various career tech areas. This opportunity can spark the interest of our younger student population by providing fun activities while they learn a new skill set. Students will create a make-it-take-it that they can take home with them.

    Students will have the opportunity to plant seeds, transplant, and harvest vegetables, construct a lightening circuit board, give a car a check-up or even make a robot using the head of a toothbrush! Parents/guardians can also observe their student in these environments and will be able to see firsthand all that Lorain County JVS has to offer.

    There will also be services and demonstrations available to the parents/guardians, such as flower arranging, and salon services; as well as free Wi-Fi.

    There will also be a Career Tech Saturday for 3rd and 4th graders on March 10th.

    Students must be registered to participate in both of the upcoming Career Tech Saturday programs.
