Field Trip Examples
Our Building Trades class traveled to St. Louis to tour and learn more about the opportunities available at the St. Louis Construction Training School. Another example is our Health Sciences class toured the hospital at the St. Louis Zoo while our Auto Body and Auto Service Technology students traveled to Indianapolis to visit and tour Lincoln (Auto) Tech. They also got to visit the garage and pit area at the Indianapolis Speedway during time trials for the Indy 500. Our business/computer classes toured the Lincoln Co. Medical Center and Bodine Aluminum plant to see how they are using state-of-the-art technology in the workplace.
