Bancroft Elementary School’s fifth grade students had a hands-on visit at the Chester County Technical High School. Each student received an overview of the more than twenty different programs at the school. They were also given three areas to visit where they jumped right into the activities. Some examples included fixing small engines, caring for animals, baking, cooking, working with wood, doing hair and make-up, learning police procedures, caring for young children, doing HVAC and refrigeration, and learning about different health careers. Our students got right into the action – putting on safety gear and learning how to use the tools and other equipment. The goal of the visit was to expose students to a variety of career choices for which training can begin in high school. Bancroft Elementary School would like to thank the staff and students of the Chester County Technical High School for a memorable field trip.
