Educators from across the state visited Penn College’s campus Friday as part of the Outreach for K-12 Office’s College and Career Readiness Conference. The twice-annual event brings together high school and career and technical education teachers, high school and middle school counselors, cooperative education coordinators, and administrators for sessions on current educational topics. Participants spend part of the day on tours of the campus, led by knowledgeable staff and instructors from technical program areas. Discussion topics included an introduction to 3-D printing and the career opportunities it presents; helping students navigate college admissions and financial aid; using social networking sites and the Web to aid the college-search process; and gender equity in science, technology, education and math.
