Students attend annual Construction Career Day

UEHS students at Construction Career Day.
UEHS students joined approximately 650 students from 26 school districts around the Broome-Tioga region in a day-long event where they learned firsthand what awaits them in the construction and technology career fields.
 
Construction & Technology Career Day is conducted at the Broome County Highway Department facility in Chenango Bridge and features exhibits by a variety of organizations and schools associ- ated with the construction/technology industries as well as trade displays and heavy equipment demonstrations. For many students, the hands-on experience included the opportunity for super- vised operation of equipment such as bulldozers, backhoes and dump trucks.

Construction & Technology Career Day is an enhancement of the previous “Construction Career Day” in that it adds a focus on the technologies involved in the construction trades. It is designed to introduce high school students to the career opportunities and unlimited potential for advancement within the construction/technology industry. While geared toward 11th- and 12th-grade students, 10th-graders are also welcome.

The event is organized by a consortium of groups, including Broome-Tioga BOCES, the New York State Department of Transportation, the Broome County Highway Department, Broome-Tioga Workforce New York, , the Construction & Technology Career Day Committee, and several local companies and trade unions involved in the construction industry.

The program is supported by the NYSDOT, Broome-Tioga BOCES’ School-to-Careers Partnership and local businesses that have provided donations to assist in covering the costs associated with this event. There is no cost to the schools.
