Illinois Home Builders Association Field Trip

Our 8th graders recently had the opportunity to attend a field trip at the Belle-Clair Fairgrounds for the Construction Industry Career Expo. The first 30 minutes our students listened to Kayleen McCabe, who had a TV show on DIY called Rescue Renovations.  There were ten different trades with booths set up that students explored. Students watched demonstrations and asked questions. This was a great opportunity for our students to see first hand a number of different career options.
