Student ambassadors from the River Valley Technical Center have been busy meeting and touring middle school students from Springfield, Bellows Falls, Green Mountain, Fall Mountain and Floodbrook. After receiving training and leadership skills, ambassadors met with the middle school groups as the visited the center in November. Middle school outreach coordinator Kelly Broker-Campbell arranged for 7th grade students to have a tour of all programs in the center as part of their personal learning plans and career exploration. 8th grade students from Floodbrook spent a longer time in two of their choice career paths and then spent time working on a project in the Pre-Technical studies program. The project required students to work collaboratively, organize themselves, communicate, and problem solve to create a structure in a timed contest. Pre-Tech is available to students in grades 9 and 10 from five area high schools, Bellows Falls, Black Mountain, Green Mountain, Fall Mountain and Springfield.
