The career fair at Clever consisted of 7th – 12th grades. 9th and 11th grades were brought in for 30 minutes and were allowed to talk with the business or trade of their choice. All of the students were required to complete a handout and had to ask questions of the attendees on a one-on-one basis in order to receive credit. The setting was very similar to a tradeshow in that students who were interested in construction or architecture came by our “booth” to find out more. SDA can be proud of the fact that we were one of the most popular booths attended. The kids asked great questions and sincerely demonstrated an interest in architecture and construction. In addition, after attending multiple educational and outreach formats, this was one of the most successful methods of engaging the students.
