It’s never too early to get kids thinking about their future. Callaway Elementary School tried to accomplish that on Friday at their first-ever science career day. All day, students rotated through stations participating in hands-on activities led by different local organizations. They got to see animals from Gulf World, learned first aid from military members as well as learned about the importance of Mosquito Patrol. Critter Inc. was also there teaching the kids about wild life conservation. Gulf Coast Electric Cooperation focused on safety.
“We’re hoping the kids will get motivated to learn the science and maybe go into one of these careers and become part of our society and community,” said 5th grade teacher Kierman Sullivan.
In total, there was about 10 different local organizations showcasing their careers.
