Ever wonder what it’s like to operate a bulldozer?!

Our students didn’t have to wonder, because that’s exactly what they did (and more) during Florida Career Construction Days.

The nationwide educational outreach program is designed to cultivate interest in high school students for the wide variety of skilled careers. This event gives students the chance to get a feel for the field by participating in activities like operating machinery and speaking to experienced industry veterans.

Students learned all about monitoring traffic patterns, using construction machinery, rode a cherry picker, and more!
