Laveen eighth graders visited Chase Field for the D-Back Career Day. Students were able to hear from and interact with professionals in Sports (Luis Gonzales), STEM, Healthcare, Zoology, and Public Service fields. They learned each profession’s daily responsibilities, the education needed to get there, and had the opportunity to ask questions based on their own interests. The day was broken into categories, making the event more interactive. There were activities such as games on the jumbo-tron and a “teacher dance off.” The eighth graders enjoyed learning about future careers and staying focused on achieving their college degree in order to pursue those dreams.
