Forrest Center Annual Tech Expo

The Dr. James A. Forrest Career & Technology Center (Forrest Center) will host its fifteenth annual Forrest Center Tech Expo on Thursday, Feb. 5, 5:30-8:00 p.m., at the school site located at 24005 Point Lookout Road, directly across from the St. Mary’s County Fairgrounds in Leonardtown, Maryland.

The purpose of the Forrest Center Tech Expo is to familiarize students and parents with Career and Technology Education (CTE) career options offered by the St. Mary’s County Public Schools.  This is an opportunity to meet the staff at the Forrest Center and to learn about the 23 completer programs and four elective classes currently offered.  Middle school and high school counselors will be available to answer questions about career clusters and to assist students in planning their academic program.  The Forrest Center will provide special presentations for parents to explain the registration process and how to incorporate Forrest Center programs into their student’s schedule.

A new completer program being offered next school year is CASE – Curriculum for Agricultural Science Education.  This three-year program allows students to study and experience agricultural science, animal biotechnology or food science and safety with a capstone project in agricultural business, research and development.  A new elective class being offered next year is Radio/Audio Production.  Students in this class learn about and produce podcasts, Internet radio, radio theater/audio plays, and sound effects.
