Join us for two Niskayuna Family Nights for Career & Technical Education, Jan. 16 and 22

Come learn about exciting opportunities in our region

Last school year, upwards of 150 came to the first-ever Niskayuna Family Night for Career and Technical Education (CTE). In January 2019, two CTE family nights have been scheduled to showcase the programs available to Niskayuna students at the Center for Advanced Technology @ Mohonasen (Jan. 16) and the Capital Region BOCES Albany CTE Campus (Jan. 22).

While these evenings are primarily for Niskayuna students in grades 5-11 and their families, all members of our school community are welcome to come get a glimpse of programs that can be part of our students’ futures.

The evenings will follow an informal open house format allowing attendees to tour the facilities, hear from CTE students and instructors, view demos in labs and ask questions. The programs will also include an opportunity to hear from business partners about the vital role that career and technical education plays in preparing high school students for quality jobs in our region.

Wednesday, Jan. 16 – Center for Advanced Technology @ Mohonasen, 6:30 to 8 p.m.

Programs at this campus include: Engineering Technician, Entertainment Technology, Game Design and Implementation, Manufacturing and Machining Technology, Sterile Processing Technician, and Welding and Metal Fabrication. This facility is on the Campus of Mohonasen High School/Draper Middle School.

Tuesday, Jan. 22 – BOCES Albany CTE Campus, 6:30 to 8 p.m.
