More than 50 Chautauqua Lake sixth-graders spent the morning at the center, touring the classrooms, speaking with instructors and hearing from some of the juniors.
Hewes Educational Center counselor Leighton Swanson hoped that the first-ever Taste of Tech was used as a springboard to reach even more districts for similar tours in the future.
“We thought it was so important to expose (our students) to all of the different options available to them and not just in high school but also beyond high school,” said Chautauqua Lake Elementary School Counselor Kara Smith. “Sometimes students get so focused on one thing and aren’t able to realize that everything is really connected. Skills they may use for one career may work for another.”

Students who attended the Taste of Tech split into two groups and toured each of the Career and Technical Education classrooms, including: Automotive Body Repair, Automotive Technology, Conservation/Natural Resource Management, Construction Technology, Cosmetology, Criminal Justice, Culinary Arts, Diesel Mechanics/Heavy Equipment Repair, Health Careers, Information Technology/Computer Systems, Graphics Technology and Small Animal Science.
