As always these businesses will be showcasing their business and careers through a hands-on, interactive activity for students, teachers & parents to experience -- including homeschoolers. These could include using tools of the trade, virtual reality, and simulators.

All attendees go through a brief safety meeting where they'll receive personal protective equipment like eye, hand, and ear protection. If any additional PPE is required the businesses will provide them for their hands-on activity.

Build My Future 2022 is a FREE event! All attendees will receive a T-shirt, PPE, & lunch. Some students may walk away with additional take-home items depending on the hands-on activities they've done.
