Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

MADISON (WKOW) — Normally middle school students are focused on their homework, but on Wednesday they got a chance to explore future career paths.

More than 89 local businesses provided students with hands-on-learning demonstrations at FutureQuest 2018 at the Alliant Energy Center. They learned about agriculture, hospitality and tourism, STEM, audio and video technology and health sciences.

“The students prepare at their schools so they know what’s going to happen when they get here and they have an opportunity to do a little research about the companies that are here. They can formulate who they want to meet with,” said Sherrie Stuessy, event coordinator.

The students were from 7th and 8th grade classrooms across Dane County.
