We had our first Career Cafe today for fifth graders during lunch. Our first parent guest was Aerospace Physiologist who trains aircrews on the physiological hazards of flight. Our presenter was a female Air Force Corporal who got her college degree via an ROTC scholarship. We had 22 students sign up and attend which was good although we could have handled up to 30. The preparation was not time consuming and those who elected to attend were very interested. Six of the boys gave up almost their entire recess asking questions and trying on gear. Next month our guest will be our school resource officer. We took the advice from other blogs to start small. This year we are doing Career Cafe at only two grade levels, third and fifth.
