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.
