Minnesota School of Business-Plymouth recently welcomed approximately 100 high school students from Armstrong High School, Wayzata High School and Sage Academy for our annual Fall Career Preview Day. The high school students broke out into five breakout sessions:
Basic Fitness Techniques with Jason Strauch, health fitness specialist program chair
Students learned about squat assessment and participated in a scavenger hunt. The winning team was able to relax while the rest of the students performed a basic exercise. “Over all I think they loved the air squats,” Strauch said.
Students first learned how to assess a patients needs and then learned basic hand and chair massage techniques.
Searching for Parasites with Allina Faul, veterinary technician program program chair, and Whitney Woeffle, resident campus veterinarian
Students focused on parasites seen in dogs and cats and utilized our microscopes to look at parasites of the blood, skin and intestines.
Business Professionalism with Elaine Vandenburgh, campus director at Minnesota School of Cosmetology
Students learned all about the importance of a good hand shake and how to make a great first impression, which is crucial for any student interested in entering the business profession.
Scholarships 101 with Libby Fishbein, college representative
During this session, students learned how to start preparing for their scholarship search such as creating a separate and professional email, identifying the best search engines and how to write an effective essay.
The day was filled with a lot of fun and we all look forward to it again next year!
