Each year, nearly 3,000 8th graders participate in hands-on career exploration with more than 70 businesses at Worlds of Work (WoW!). More than 70 businesses showcase equipment, vehicles, and machinery that students climb into, fix, and manipulate. There are also animals students can touch and care for as well as life-like mannequins they might splint and stitch. The event is designed to be a hands-on exploration of possible careers.
