Construction Career Days 1, May 13, 2010 MassDOT's Highway Division is proud to participate each year in the annual Massachusetts Construction Career Days for high school students.  MassDOT provided equipment and volunteers for the 8th annual event, held May 5-6 at the New England Laborer’s Training Center in Hopkinton.

The Career Days provide hundreds of high school students from across the Commonwealth an opportunity to spend a day learning about possible careers in the construction industry.  The hands-on activities include solving engineering skills challenges and trying out the skills of various construction trades, such as operating heavy equipment, trying out crane, excavator, truck-driving and manufacturing simulators, performing carpentry work, placing concrete, laying bricks, welding and doing a survey level run. 

Students also visit booths staffed by colleges, trade schools, and apprenticeship training programs.  MassDOT hopes that some of the members of our next generation of construction industry workers could be found at the Career Days, learning about the work and being inspired to pursue a career in construction.
