Students at STEM Middle Academy in Springfield participated in a career fair at their school on Thursday.
The sixth through eighth-grade students were able to talk to several local employers about their careers.
Some of the presenters were lawyers, others were officers and employees of the Springfield Police Department, as well as mechanics from local dealerships.
“We’re just walking around and interviewing, asking people questions about their careers to kind of get an idea about what we would want to do when we get older,” eighth-grader Kaleigh Harris told 22News.
22News also participated in the career fair at STEM Middle Academy.
22News Storm Team Meteorologist Adam Strzempko was there, speaking to students.
