Fort Scott, Kansas – Fort Scott Community College is hosting the 6th Annual Careers in Construction Week on October 28, 29 and 30. Approximately six hundred eighth graders from Southeast Middle School, Baxter Springs Middle School, Pittsburg Middle School, Frontenac Middle School, Fort Scott Middle School, Girard Middle School and Northeast Middle School will join college instructors for interactive demonstrations in FSCC programs like Carpentry, Masonry and Welding.

Carpentry stations will allow students to enjoy hands-on experience with sanders, routers, miter saws, drills and other power tools. Masonry stations include instruction in spreading mortar, laying brick and operating both a backhoe and skid loader. Welding stations will let interested eight graders try their hand at oxy-acetylene and plasma torches.

Participating students will build a project to take home with them. Part of the project will require the direct application of math skills related to the construction trades.

Judy Meister, FSCC’s Vocational Recruiter, said, “Our goal is to generate interest in young students for technical programs. Part of this is about exposing students to our school, but mostly we’re interested in helping students realize that the math and other school work they do now will not only help them get into college, but will help them get well-paying jobs when they’re adults.”

For more information on the day’s events, please contact Meister at (620) 223-2700 x. 5247.
