What is Exploring?

Exploring is a co-ed career-education program that allows high school students (aged 14-20) to learn more about a particular career through hands-on activities that are workplaced-based.

Exploring allows students to see the real world application of the career paths they are interested in.

Earlier this year we highlighted two of the Engineering Explorer Posts in our Region, Post 801 hosted by the Rochester Engineering Society, and the post hosted by the Rochester Chapter of the Society of Women Engineers.

Currently there are 86 Explorer Posts being offered (and 11 more pending!).

Besides Engineering, there are many other areas that can be explored.
