More than 700 high school students were on campus at the University of Notre Dame on Friday, exploring what a career in the trades looks like. More than 60 contractors showcased their work, with videos, virtual reality, and demonstrations. They explained what it really means to be part of the trades. Building Trades Day.
All students who came to campus today are already in a career and technical education, or CTE, program or class, so the trades are not completely new to them.
Each company here got to show what they do, some providing simulations, videos, pictures, and demonstrations.
