Event Description

Finger Lakes Works…with their hands! is our annual Skilled Trades and Advanced Manufacturing career exploration event. Every year several hundred students and school personnel from all area high schools and BOCES districts attend this exciting event. More than 50 businesses, trade unions, colleges and organizations will provide hands on demonstrations and activities for the students including welding, pole climbing, nail driving competitions, engineering skills, bricklaying, electrical wiring, the actual operation of heavy equipment and much, much MORE!

In addition to Careers in Construction and Skilled Trades, students can learn about Advanced Manufacturing and Alternative Energy. Demonstrations on the importance of working safely in a construction environment are also included in the day. All participants enjoy a science show entitled ‘Physics is Phun!’  Students can participate in a variety of Skilled Trades challenges for the opportunity to win one of 5, $50 Gift Cards. Both the exhibitors and the students have always indicated that this is a great way to learn more about career and educational opportunities in our Finger Lakes area.
