Students will take part in real-world demonstrations of technology and innovations from more than 40 leading companies in northeast Ohio.
The event takes place on Friday, October 3 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Physical Education Building (Woodling Gym), located at 2451 Euclid Avenue. More than 500 students are expected. The event is ideal for students in grades 7-12, college students, parents and anyone interested in discovering the careers of the future.
