These kids put their skills to the test using a ruler and tools in the Construction Class. 

HOUSTON -- The Chickasaw County 2nd grade students (Houlka and Houston) were introduced to careers when they came to visit the Houston Career and Technology Education Center.

Students were given a tour of each program and participated in interactive learning activities in each program.

Students learned to decorate cookies in Culinary, build structures in Engineering, make their own book in Teacher Academy, how to use a ruler and tools in Construction/Electrical, how to handle live chickens in Agriculture, how to perform an assembly line in Business Fundamentals and how food digests in Health Science.

"Our goal is to get students to start thinking of careers at an early age," said CTE Director Teresa Moore. "The kids enjoyed seeing what the CTE has to offer, and some even said they were ready to have a career in many of our programs. The CTE instructors, CTE students and 2nd grade teachers worked hard to make the day go smoothly. In all there were over 160 2nd graders, and with everyone working together the day was a success!"
