Tech Knowledge College: Providing a path to the future

Last week, Moraine Park hosted Tech Knowledge College (TKC), a three-day opportunity for middle school students to get a hands-on, interactive look at the skills and careers in our world. The students got to choose two sessions to attend from over 20 options including: Build a Robot!, Auto Techs, Hostess with the Mostess, Good Eats Bistro, Hair Techniques and The Art of Architecture. There was an abundance of energy and fun filling the halls of Moraine Park for three days!
I was cordially invited to attend a tea party hosted by the ladies of “Hostess with the Mostess.”  They did a wonderful job setting the table and preparing delicacies to serve. Students in the class learned napkin folding, proper dining etiquette and party planning.  These ladies are well on their way to being the “perfect hostess” and I learned some techniques to help me!

TKC allows students to learn about career opportunities and the education and training required.  Students get a chance to experience a college atmosphere and see the value of career and technical education at a young and critical age.  Moraine Park has been hosting TKC for over 20 years and I look forward to seeing it continue to grow.
