Gallery: NTC Hosts Area High Schools at Career Olympics for Auto, Building Trades Programs

Around 60 students from area high schools visited Northwest Technical College March 13 for the Career Olympics. The day of activities demonstrated careers in automotive; electrical construction & maintenance; plumbing or heating, ventilation and air conditioning.

After a welcome and introduction from Darrin Strosahl, NTC’s vice president of academic affairs, students visited stations for each of the four featured academic programs and joined in hands-on activities with instructors.

Academic program faculty at each station gave a brief overview of their program, then directed students in hands-on activities. Each student experienced each of the four represented programs.
