On Friday, October 21, Keene State College hosted CTE day for several high schools from NH and MA.
ConVal High School students attended presentations about how they can further their education in dedicated CTE programs at Keene and how they, as technical program completers in the Applied Technology Center at ConVal, could already earn college credit.
The ConVal High School student group broke out into two class sessions, one before lunch and one after, based on the programs the students are currently in. One group went to ceramics and learned about clay. The instructor demonstrated how to make tiles and invited students to sculpt a self-portrait blindfolded. Additional activities included science and engineering mini-lessons, a 3D printing demonstration, and a visit to a photography exhibit.
Keene State currently offers CTE students up to 8 college credits from work accomplished. Scholarships are available for students who major in chemistry, biology, and sustainable product design and innovation – as supported by the STEPS Program and the Delmar Ogg Scholarship Fund.
