Castro Elementary in Mission had a Career Day on Friday, March 23 for 4th and 5th grade students that focused on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math related fields. This event exposes the students to a variety of careers in which they may be interested in pursuing in the future.
Students enjoyed going to the different booths to talk to the presenters about their career fields. They were mostly attracted to the booths that had demonstrations on how to create a microchip. The process starts with using a breadboard for prototyping the electronics to make sure everything functions correctly before permanently putting it on a microchip.
“I think my favorite booth has to be the technology, they told us about how to make apps,” said Isiah Casas, Castro Elementary 5th grade student. “Technology interests me very much, mainly the coding and app development.”
Castro Elementary would like to express their gratitude to all the businesses/organizations that participated in this event in which they were able to share specific details about their careers with their students.
