HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The career and technical education class at Hattiesburg High School paid a visit to the students of the Lillie Burney STEAM Academy to show them what high school has to offer.

The high school students demonstrated the types of things that they are learning and how they apply that to the real world.

It is all done to give the kids an idea of the different fields that they can pursue in the future.

Student representatives from the career and technical programs showed the sixth graders the various ways they could use math and science in careers. The theme for the program is Summer Safety, and the representatives incorporated math and electricity through the presentations.

"This could show them something that 'hey, I really like this and I can see myself doing this in the future,’” HHS sophomore Tyson King said. “It's important to peak their interest at a young age so that they can start now if they wanted to partake in the program."

The demonstration was made possible by the Hattiesburg Public School District Foundation through a grant from the South Mississippi Electric Power Association.
