The Mohawk Valley - It's a great place to live, learn and earn. 

  • The Showcase is free and open to the public.
  • Students from middle schools and high schools in Oneida, Herkimer and Madison counties give live demonstrations and presentations of the activities they are doing in their Technology Education classes.
  • Competitions include Computer Aided Drafting and Design, Balsa Bridges, Energy-themed Logo design, KidWind and Robotics.
  • Students may also participate in live car races, newsprint structures and catapult contests.

The Showcase features area technology-related businesses and organizations who show students career opportunities that exist in the Mohawk Valley.

Representatives from colleges with technology-related programs across New York State attend to talk to students.
