411Blast Day is designed to expose students to career possibilities that they may not know about, and provide them with a blast of information about their options:
o the benefits of industry certifications,
o hands-on skills,
o college prep academics,
o dual enrollment credit,
o employability skills.
Students choose two programs of interest and then spend over two hours visiting those labs, meeting the instructors and participating in hands-on equipment demonstrations.
The day provides students with more information to base their career decisions upon and gives them first-hand knowledge about the Career Center.
