Fifth Grade Visits Chester County Technical College High School

New Garden Elementary School’s fifth grade students enjoyed their hands-on visit at Chester County Technical College High School where each student received an overview of the more than twenty different programs available at the school. The students were also given the opportunity to jump right into the activities at some of the programs. Some examples included fixing small engines, caring for animals, baking, cooking, working with wood, experience the world of hair and make-up, learning police procedures, caring for young children, trying their hand at HVAC and refrigeration, and learning about different health careers. In each of these areas our students got right into the action – putting on safety gear and learning how to use the tools and equipment. The goal of the visit was to expose students to a variety of career choices for which training can begin in high school. New Garden Elementary School would like to thank the staff and students of the Chester County Technical College High School for a memorable field trip.
