DETAILS: Edison Career and Technology High School is reinventing the classic field trip. This week, the Trucking Association of New York (TANY) is holding a three-day event at the Edison campus, exposing students to career opportunities as diesel mechanics. Students will have the opportunity to engage in hands-on experience with the latest in diesel technology while learning inside information on the need for technicians right at school.
Representatives from TANY are working with students over three days in the Auto Technology classes, teaching hands-on lessons involving brake systems, electrical systems, and overall diesel engine orientation. Students in the Manufacturing Pathway, NYSAA, and Freshman CTE students will also have the opportunity to visit with individual companies looking to hire and train students. They will be able to get in the trucks, work with their engines, and experience a 3-D driving simulator.
