The Racine Unified School District (RUSD) SEE Your Future Expo took place Nov. 14.
This event was an opportunity for educational institutions, businesses, and other organizations to meet and interact with students and sharing the skills, experiences, and education that helps organizations to be successful.
The event was divided into three focused sections, with each section featuring several possible career opportunities.
The three sections were business & information technology; culinary arts, education, health sciences & leadership/military, and automotive, aviation & technical services.
Some career exploration focuses for the various sections were A/V technology & communications, health science and engineering & mathematics (STEM) among many others.
The expo is one of the experiential learning opportunities that the new Academies of Racine offer their students. They also conduct college visits to help students get an idea of what a college environment might look like.
