th Annual Career Trek, hosted by Aurora Public Schools, is scheduled for 11-12 February for all 8
th grade students. Rocky Mountain BEST will participate on February 11 as an exhibitor.
BEST provides a great way to promote workplace, STEM, team building, and communication skills which tie into the goals of Career Trek.
Career Trek provides an interactive experience and an opportunity for the students to develop essential and professional skills they will use in a short time from now. Even at the event, students can be rewarded for professional behaviors deemed appropriate by an exhibitor. Asking thoughtful questions, having a firm handshake, introducing themselves, maintaining good eye contact, or dressing professionally may earn a student a “ticket of professionalism.”
Middle School is a great time to explore future options for students. Of course, we promote STEM as a mighty path to follow while demonstrating our Outreach Robot: Illuminati.
