On Wednesday, September 25, elementary and middle school students and their families will have a special hands-on opportunity to explore the wide world of work, all while enjoying games, prizes and snacks. That's when the very first Career Carnival for Kids will be held in the Butler community room at 10 High Street (in the Butler Police Station) from 6:00 to 7:30 PM.
This free event is open to everyone and will showcase occupations across a range of industries, from Morristown Airport's aviation authorities to Goryeb Children's Hospital's healthcare professionals to BMW's automotive experts. Kids interested in nutrition and cooking will meet (and eat) with ShopRite and Red Lobster, and create their own cold-cooking concoction with The Art Diner.
STEM-focused kids can talk tech with Code Ninjas, those who like to work with their hands will learn about locksmithing with Pop-A-Lock, and the American Water Works Association will appeal to everyone with the fascinating water-related areas they cover.
From the pharmacy to the library to the military, Career Carnival for Kids will help cultivate "career curiosity" among young people with many different interests.
