WKCTC Job and Transfer Fair Welcomes Businesses, Universities and Army STEM Semi-Truck

West Kentucky Community and Technical College will host its annual Job and Transfer Fair for its students and alumni Wednesday, March 11 from 10 am. 2 p.m. in Haws Gymnasium.

Representatives from over 50 businesses and 10 universities will be on campus to talk with students about job plans for the future. Those attending the fair should bring several copies of their resume to distribute and dress professionally.

New to the fair this year is the local Army offices American Soldier Adventure Semi-Truck (AS7) that will feature a unique science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) experience based in the future.

The AS7 experience includes a series of three different rooms, the Situation Room, the Mission Room, and the Research and Development Room.

Upon entering the experience in groups of 10-20, visitors will enter the future surrounded by flat panel displays showing fictional news clips from
around the world in 2032.

In room two, the groups will join a team of soldiers and scientists to analyze the factors faced in a disaster scenario and use STEM skills to consider a way to overcome the hazards involved and help people in the scenario.

The groups will use an interactive screen to devise a solution to the scenario in room three.

The Job and Transfer Fair and entrance to the AS7 are free and open to all WKCTC students and alumni.

The media is encouraged to attend.
