Middle School Students Explore Careers

Over 750 students from nine Oahu schools participated in the Hawaii P-20 middle school career fair at the Hawaii Convention Center. The highlight of the event were the partnerships that were developed between education and industry as over 75 exhibitors from University of Hawaii and private sector organizations came together to provide interactive, hands-on exhibits for students to experience. From 3-D gadgets to movie cameras and automotive technology equipment, students were intrigued and engaged in learning about the various careers within the nine Career and Technical Education (CTE) pathways.

This is the third annual middle school fair coordinated by Hawaii P-20. Over the years the event has expanded from 25 exhibitors to over 75, as well as the number of students attending has grown from 300 to over 750.
