“We have our traditional careers such as law-enforcement in the military which their tables are overflowing with people which is great to see but we also have the drones, cyber security and robotics which are today’s technology. So the students are getting the information which gives them ideas. Their ninth grader so they are there at their critical point in life where they want to start thinking about what they want to do when I grow up,” said Ray Durso, with the Genesis Group.
