Among approximately 600 students from around the region who participated in this year’s “Con-Tech Construction and Technology Career Day” at the Broome County Highway Department on October 2, Chenango Valley students put on their hard hats and prepared for an insightful day.

Whether learning directly from skilled professionals and trades displays, watching heavy equipment demonstrations or directly operating equipment under supervision; the event helped to inspire students to continue pursuing their current interests and exposed them to a variety of additional opportunities to further explore.
