The 2017 Greenbuild Legacy, Green building Tech Program had its first tradeshow demonstration of green building technologies Wednesday the 20th. 70 trade school students from Madison Park Vocational Technical High School attended this informative event.
Students were able to engaged with the vendors and experience a unique opportunity of how a trade show is run. Six vendors representing the HVAC, carpentry, plumbing, and facilities management industries set up a mini expo hall for the students to view demonstrations and learn about green building products.
The juniors and seniors were “very excited” to learn about career opportunities after high school. Students were particularly thrilled about the mentorship opportunity.
A raffle was held and four students received Dunkin Donuts gift cards as a thank you for their participation. After this event, nearly 30 students signed up for the first upcoming field trip to Cambridge's MLK School next week (a near net-zero school building).
Thank you to the companies that participated in the tradeshow: Conservation Solutions Corporation, CoolGreen Power, Water Energy Distributors, Tremco, Veritiv Corporation, and Stacks & Joules.
